Looking for a head for my Slider+ v2

I tried a Benro S6 but it was horrible. I selected it based on some reviews and the fact that it had adjustable counterbalance, and weighed < 3lbs. I am looking for something not exceeding the 3lb limit if possible while able to support 12lbs max CB.

Recommendations appreciated!

TIA!

I believe there is still a $75 rebate on this head. It only hits 11lbs on capacity, and doesn't adjust counterbalance. I just got mine last week and haven't used it enough to give a valid comparison, but It's well built and moves smoothly.

Yeah the lack of a real CB is a deal breaker for me.
