Best Mattebox system for a GY-700U W/Canon 14x lens?

I've recently been thinking of finally investing in a mattebox system for my GY-700U.

I currently use the Canon 14x lens, and would like to purchase a system that includes the follow focus device for the Canon lens, and all the misc stuff like supports, french flag, and filter holders.

What are you using and how is it holding up? Can the entire assembly be kept together and attached/removed to/from the cam without too much fuss?

I'd like to keep in the 2K-3K range if possible.

Lets hear your thoughts.

Steve, check out the VOCAS matteboxes, we use them for digital cinema, they are great and not too costly.

The FF is Ok but not as versatile as Arri or Chrosziel, but of course costing a lot less.
