Remarkably Steady

  • Summary: Just purchased this last month and I've shot three live events using this monopod and am very impressed with how smooth and steady the camera work turned out. The fluid base makes pans remarkably smooth with exactly the right amount of resistance. This unit has allowed me to fit into spaces and get shots I would never had been able to get with a tripod while remaining much steadier than hand-held shots. This monopod is well-built, strong, sturdy, and smooth.
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Good Footing, Locks In Tight, Rugged, Smooth Movement
  • Cons: Heavy, No tilt on this model

This would be more cost-effective being sold without the head.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this item because of the 193cm height and it did not disappoint me. The head, however did not match any readily available tripod heads and there was no cross-referenced table as to which plates were interchangeable with which heads. To put together a system where I could rapidly change my camera from the tripod to the monopod and back, I needed to purchase an extra head for the monopod so that I knew it would accept the plate from the tripod.
