Oben vs manfrotto

I thought I posted this here but apparently was posted on field accessories. Anyway, I am looking at the manfrotto 294 and the oben ct 2500. It seems that because the oben includes the swivel head that it may be the better way to go. Your thoughts please

Both are well made monopods. The Oben in addition to including the VH-R2 Tilt Head and dust bag is taller [65" (165.1 cm) vs 59.45" (151 cm)], collapses smaller [17.3" (43.9 cm) vs 19.29" (49 cm)], has a higher load capacity [26 lb (11.8 kg) vs 11.02 lb (5.0 kg)] yet weighs almost the same as the 294.
