Sturdy Bogen head (30lbs+/-)

I'm having trouble finding a good Bogen head that will take my camera and crane without wobbling or breaking. I have the 12' Kessler crane which is very nice, but with the crane, the camera, and the counter balance the unit is close to 30lbs. I'm not worried about the sticks, I just need a heavy-duty head.

Mounting directly to the sticks is not an option.

Any suggestions?

I had the Bogen/Manfrotto 3066 head (out of production) which I traded to another fellow for a 503. That thing was way overbuilt for even the full-size pro gear I was using before getting the XL-2. Now it appears that the 526 is the only comparable one available, unless you scour eBay.
