Is the Manfrotto 116Mk 3 still in production?

I've been asked to sell the Manfrotto 116 Mk3 fluid head for a friend, but can't seem to find much on it. Is it still a current model? It's a pretty solid afair, with twin telescoping pan arms and a chunky sliding plate that's bigger than a lot of palmcorders.

It looks like the 3066 head, which is now the 516 (?)

I never quite got why Bgn/Mfto did that. It seems every 5 years or so, same heads, different numbers.

How much are you/they asking?

I need a video head...and a decent one on a budget...and the 116MKIII would be a great fit.

It is a heavy duty pro video head and has twin pan handles, spirit level, huge quick release plate (MN116 PT). It looks like new. 150. That's UK pounds, and it weighs 3.6 kg (over 9 lbs) so will cost a bit in postage.
