Manfrotto 509 Head purchased. Need Legs!

I got a good deal in a Manfrotto 509 head. However, I have no legs compatible with it. It is an industry standard half bowl 75mm head. Any good suggestions? I need something flexible and versatile, which could give me good low angle shots and and high angle ones. Lightweight would be a plus (Guerrila type shooting).

I've been looking at Miller's legs, are they any good (Not the Basketballer, the tripods!)

If you want low-angle shots, perhaps you could get a hi-hat?

Oh, and if nobody mentions this, you should also be able to look at 100mm bowl tripods and use a 75mm to 100mm adapter. This might give you more options.

Thanks a lot, Marcus. Probably will do this when I intend an upgrade. I believe 100mm compatible legs are still a bit too expensive for me at this time, and probably overkill for HVX and DVX production.
