On the main forums page there is a menu column​ on the left in which there is a 'classifieds' item. Click that and then 'accessories'.

 

Here is a link: All Classifieds - Classifieds - NikonForums.com

I also use a Manfrotto, but don't use it that much, so can't really say much about it.

I have a Manfrotto 3249B, with a Manfrotto ball head attached.  It is a four section aluminum monopod, and very sturdy, even with relatively large lenses.  Manfrotto has a few to pick from and in general the larger ones are the most stable in my experience.

If someone in the UK has been looking for a carbon fiber Gitzo SER.2 6X EXPLORER 4 S. G-LOCK, it might be the moment to get one, as it is currently offered less than half price:

From what you are describing, I think you want a monopod AND a ball head.
