Short Legs for 503 Head

Hi folks,
I've got a shoot coming up that is going to require some low positioning. I have a Bogen 503 head and a Panasonic AGDVC 200 (about 12-15 lbs w/battery)

I've check several sites, but the prices ($300+) are beyond my budget. Anyone know of short legs sticks that will work with the 503 head at a reasonable (ok, cheap) price?
Thanks - David Bird

Several of the Bogen/Manfrotto legs will spread much wider than the standard position. With the legs collapsed and spread wider, you can effectivly get to about 18". My 2001 legs do this, but they tend to get a mite twisty at times... but they were cheap!
