Seatpost suggestions

I need suggestions on a decent looking seatpost. I love the Miche Primato Pista Supertype Seatpost, but I hate that the length of the thing is so short. Have any of you seen anything similar or perhaps better. Please fill me in.

For me, the best seatpost ever is the old Campagnolo 2-bolt seatpost. There is zero chance of the saddle slipping with that setup. Of course they haven't been made for years. I get mine off e-bay for about $40-50.
But there's nothing fancy about this post. It just gets the job done - perfectly.

Edit - if anyone is putting "Campagnolo seatpost" into e-bay, make sure you use both spellings - "seatpost" and "seat post".
