Tall(ish) Tripod with Spreader, Fluid Head for 500

Is it possible to get a decent/good tall(ish) tripod with a floor spreader and fluid head for around 500.

Thanks for any help

I bought one of these last month

Manfrotto 058B Aluminum Triaut Tripod

and use it with one of these

Manfrotto 700RC2 Mini Video Fluid Head

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/272630-REG/Manfrotto_700RC2_700RC2_Mini_Video_Fluid.html
I haven't had an opportunity to use it on a shoot, but I have been playing with it and really like it.

I have the older version of this tripod, the 075. I have had it for about 30 years and it is great. Goes up to about seven and a half feet. I originally got it with a 3d head but changed to the 128RC when I went into more video. Great for getting over congregation and photographers.
