Summary: The quality of this monopod, while not quite as nice as my Gitzo tripod, is excellent, and actually a lot better than I expected it to be! It's really tall! Taller than advertised actually! Mine measures 76" (6'4") which is great for me as I am 6'5". Fully extended, I can put the foot way out in front of my own for an extremely stable position. This reduces side-side movement. The finish is beautiful, the locking knobs are nicely rubberized and work smoothly and easily.
Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Rugged, Smooth Movement
