I went to B&H and tried all the cheap heads on display (there are many) a few years ago and came a way thinking the E-Image heads felt the best to me- for real budget fluid heads. I believe the company is based out of South Korea. Also don't know how stiff the tripods are. I have the GH03 that I've used with DSLRs and it feels smooth. Doesn't hold a lot of weight, so they are rated on the light side- also the tilt lock is weak. But it's smooth for the money.
A colleague of mine has the GH10 E-Image kit linked above. He has not mentioned having any issues with his GH-10 kit. If you notice B&H is selling the kit at a discounted price $999 USD. I recently had my Sachtler FSB6/ Speedlock 75 kit repaired for $650 USD. I would have been better off buying the E-Image GH10 kit.
