Excerpt: I purchased this monopod because it extends to 74" and supports 33 lbs. After using it about 6 times the top section separated from the lower section while I was extending it with a $ camera and lens attached. I got lucky and didn't drop the section when they separated.
Excerpt: Just wanted to respond to the reviewer who commented that there was no place to store the allen wrench. Yes, you are right. I slid mine under the foam collar at the top of the mono and it is never going to be lost.
Excerpt: I needed a monopod for shooting concert videos in crowded clubs, where a tripod would be a tripping hazard. This monopod is sturdy, with quick release latches that are rock solid, making worry-free video shoots. Highly recommended!
