I would recommend this product

RGW, WEX

  • Summary: Improves the versatility of the monopod because it allows the short spike to be permanently available. The rubber foot encases it for normal use. I also have the longer spike which works very well in soft ground.The short spike should be standard not an accessory hence only 4 stars
  • Pros: Compact, Good Footing, Lightweight, Locks In Tight

Recommended accessory

  • Summary: This is a really useful accessory - and in some conditions it's pretty essential. All the more pity, then, that Gitzo doesn't supply it as part of the original monopod purchase!Mine stays fitted to the monopod most of the time. The covering rubber cap fits well, but can be readily removed (best done with a firm twisting motion). My only word of caution is, if you're travelling by air with your monopod in your hand luggage, do remember to remove the spike first.
  • Pros: Easy To Fit, Useful Support

  • Summary: Reading the previous comment, I have exactly the opposite problem. I find it almost impossible to get the rubber feet off the spikes, the fit is so tight.

Heavy Spikes

Spridge, WEX
28 January 2011
  • Summary: These spikes do the job perfectly well, but don't come with a bag to put them in when not in use. This means you have potentially muddy spikes to put in either your pocket or bag.They are also metal, making them bulky and heavy to transport.
  • Pros: Good Footing, Locks In Tight
  • Cons: Heavy, Lack of bag

Solid product

  • Summary: A solid well built set of spiked feet, easy to install to the tripod legs, provided with a rubber protector for each foot which is a good job, the spiked ends are sharp and solid so be carefull where you put the tripod and be carefull if turning around when carrying the tripods with legs extended.
  • Pros: secures the tripod legs on almost any outdoor surf
  • Cons: rubber spike protectors not very secure
