Gitzo has really good carbon fiber tripods. But they are really expensive. The brands for good ballhead are Really Right Stuff (RRS), Arca Swiss, Markins and KangRin Poche. Again, they are costly.
I think Benro (currently using) is good enough for amateur like myself. The price is half of Manfrotto's. When you do buy one, try to invest in (1) carbon fiber tripod and (2) get a 3 section legs. It is steadier than 4 section legs tripod. Find out the weight of your camera and lens and buy the tripod that supports that weight.
I realise that a good ballhead is more important than the tripod. As long as the tripod is steady but you don't want your camera to fall off from the ballhead.
Does M'sia have Really Right Stuff ballhead? If you see any, could you please let me know the price range? Thanks.
