Works, but it's no Gitzo.

  • Excerpt: I bought this as it was carbon fiber, folds down very small, and was a reasonable price. Having had it for about a year I can say this. The top two twist locks have to be twisted all of the way out before the leg will move. you then have to screw them all of the way back in to lock them off.

Carrying a monopod for a month is easy
