Buy Hakuba PSTC 100 Tripod Case

Jim, Internet Shopper, B&H Photo
14 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The GM5541 is outstanding and I am not going to add to the other superlative reviews. However, you are going to require a case for it and your RRS MH-01 monopod head. I also added the 3" large foot, which is also recommended here. But, ... what to use as a case. Buy the Hakuba PSTC 100 tripod case which can handily fit all three items and store extra parts as well.

Great Product

15 December 2012
  • Excerpt: I use this while hiking around in the woods w/ either a Nikon 400 f2.8, or 300 f2.8. I have tried using a tripod, but it just wasn't practical. Following black bears w/ cubs, bucks, or doe's w/ their fawns in tow. Constantly having to change shooting heights, & trying to shoot around objects. Climbing over down trees etc... I has proven to be rock solid, easy & quick to adjust.

Very sturdy monopod

  • Excerpt: Quite expensive for a monopod but well worth the money, I love it!! Very thick and sturdy, holds up my nikon D4 with my 200-400 VR with no problem. Very thick so I guess you can use it for a walking stick or a baseball bat if need be,, just kidding.

Too large of a diameter

Enthusiast, B&H Photo
19 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I returned the unit, because the diameter of the upper section was too large to be comfortable. I wish the technical data would include the diameter. On the plus side the unit was very well made and if the tube had been smaller I would have kept it.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tube Diameter

Heavy Duty Monopod

Bill, B&H Photo
9 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I had an older monopod by a different manufacturer. I was not comfortable using my new canon 600mm lens on the older monopod. I have had other Gitzo equipment for many years and been very pleased with it all. The GM5541 is rated for 55 lbs, which gives me a good comfort level when I put a $13,000.00 lens on it. It is very beefy and the leg locks are very secure and easy to use.
