Fix for 681B monopods

aheiden, B&H Photo
2 June 2011
  • Excerpt: When I first got this, it didn't fit over the rubber foot for my 681B pod (the foot is too huge). I tried putting the spike on without the rubber foot and, though it fit, was heart attack inducing to tighten. Even after tightening I could still pull it off with little effort. So I messed around with the bearing on the screw and then the nut. I turned the nut around (so the text is facing outwards) and it became far easier to tighten.
  • Pros: Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy

Superb

  • Excerpt: I was originally going to buy a replacement rubber piece, but I couldn't find the one I needed. So I ended up ordering this spiked foot instead. Works really well and makes my monopod rotate smooth on the ground.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Bulky

Limited to profesional usage only, IMHO

  • Excerpt: Not what I had hoped for. <br />For professional, not personal(amateur)use. Just too darned heavy; but I imagine it would be very suitable for the purpose intended (e.g. as a professional surveying implement) but if you are just looking for some added stability for a monopod try to find another, lighter, item designed for the job.
  • Pros: Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Poor Design

Great Product for Hiking with camera

merlin87, Adorama
21 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Great product. My one possible complaint is that the rubber tip from the monopod has to be removed to install it, making the monopod almost useless for indoor use. But, if like me you are a hiker, this makes your monopod great for use as a hiking stick combined with an invaluable photographic tool.
  • Pros: Improves Tripod Function, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Bulky, Limits monopod usefulness

Monopod spike

BarryR, WEX
17 February 2010
  • Summary: This spike is much bigger than anticipated, easy to fit to monopod. Footplate helps easy penetration of soft ground and it will then stand up on its own. Matches the Manfrotto monopods for robustness.
  • Pros: Unbreakable
