So, I am into shooting videos. I currently have an Amazon Basic tripod. It's good for shooting still footage, but not so good for getting that good B-roll. The panning is not as smooth as I hope. When I go left and right, it gets stuck and messes up the whole shot.

I have a Canon 70D, and since I got it, I've invested in some better lenses. Now I need a better tripod with a fluid head. I know Manfrotto is the best of the best, but that is a bit more than I want to spend. I was hoping to get one for no more than $300 USD.

What are you guys' suggestion?

Pretty long article. It talks about starting from scratch though. But the two mentioned in my price ranged isn't too bad. I will keep looking. Thanks for this, never heard of these brands.

Basically, the article boils down to this:
"Or...you could just skip all the intermediary steps and buy the final solution first. "
