Not for a 400 2.8

  • Excerpt: Have used this about a year and the top section came off and the upper clamp is loose. Constantly have to tighten the allen screw and eventually it stripped. Might be okay for a 70-200 but NOT for a 400 2.8.

Study, height adjusts quickly, but a bit "ephemeral"

  • Excerpt: The MML 3290B does what I want it to do. It easily holds my Nikon D7100 + 80-400 VR, and I'm confident that it will support something much heavier. It is light enough for me to carry for hours.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Strong construction
  • Cons: Parts Wear Out Too Quickly

Tall and sturdy

14 March 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Extends To 74", Supports 33 Lbs
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Qel System Clips Keep Bre, Thin Plastic Clips Break

Love it

  • 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.
