I still swear by the Manfrotto Magic Arms. Mine have the central screw knob to adjust tension, and I had a problem with droop right away, so I added a leather (cut from an old guitar strap) washer at the joint, and that made a huge improvement. You can see it in these photos:
We recently "inherited" a couple of the lever style ones, but I haven't tried using them yet.
Great, thanks Frank! I think the knob makes more sense than the lever for my purposes. I'll pick up one of those.
