Impressive build quality & sturdiness

Mike D., Adorama

  • Excerpt: I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this monopod. Most importantly it is very sturdy (no flex at all) even when fully extended. I primarily use it with a d610 and 70-200 f/2.8, often with 2.0 extender. <br /><br />The flip locks are easier and faster to operate than the twist locks I have on my carbon fiber tripod. The product finish is excellent. Foam grip on upper section is nice.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No carry bag, No Spike Foot Option

  • Excerpt: This monopod is excellent. I have been very happy with it and even after putting it through a size able amount of work it has lived up. I use it regularly, at least 6-8 days a month if not more. The monopod is light and easily raided or lowered as needed.
  • Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement

Great product

  • Excerpt: I really like this monopod! I especially appreciate the flip locks and the height of the unit. I hate having to hunch over to use my camera viewfinder, so this works very well, even without using a ball head on it. The unit is quite sturdy and is helpful as a walking stick in place of my cane. The new rotating foot is also a nice touch.

Best monopod available!

  • Excerpt: Had a Manfrotto 681B break in two while shooting a game. I often take my monopod off when players approach the end-zone and prefer to hand-hold my 300mm for a little more responsiveness. I gently toss the monopod behind me and out of the way of play, but this time it snapped in two.<br /><br />After seeing another Tog with a Benro (Magnesium Alloy version), I liked what I saw and decided to get a Benro but opted for the stronger carbon fiber version.
  • Pros: Carbon Fiber, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction, Swivel Pod Foot
  • Cons: None

Fantastic product

  • Excerpt: After my previous monopod with screw threads fell apart, I was determined to buy one with clamps and I'm glad I did. The Benro is superstrong, superfast at opening and closing, lightweight, and compact - all the things I was looking for in a monopod. And it looks and feels as if it will last forever, but I've only had it a short time, and have not subjected it to much use. Stongly recommended so far.

  • Excerpt: We use this mostly for collecting footage during events, parties etc. It is easy to set up and deploy, adds very little weight to the overall camera. Locks up nice and stable, have not had any problems with it yet.

Strong and steady

  • Excerpt: It's got girth. Very steady platform to shoot from. I'm using a Canon 1D MkIV and Canon 500/f4L IS lens cradled in a Wimberely head on this monopod. It is a huge improvement over using a convertible leg off of a tripod, which is what I was using previously. No flexing at all, even fully extended. It's no replacement for a tripod, but it is far more portable and makes lugging a big lens around a lot easier.
  • Pros: Compact, Opens Quickly, Rock solid, Strong Construction
