  • Excerpt: I'll give it a 3 star rating for now since I haven't used it too much. It is strong and the handle is great as is the wrist strap.

  • Excerpt: I had hoped to take night shots without carrying a heavy tripod. It turns out that yes it was lighter but I got better shots going hand held. maybe it was me not being used to the monopod.

The standard monopod

  • Excerpt: I knew I swore I'd never buy another Manfrotto product after my last monopod fell apart piece by piece, but they're still such a good value its hard to not buy them. The 679B is a no frills, standard monopod that doesn't let you down. Its very light, and the clamps lock tight.

Mixed on this one

  • Excerpt: A well priced monopod that extends quickly and locks into place assuredly. However, I lost the bottom rubber stopper, fell off while getting into an elevator and went down the crack between the car and door. Getting a replacement from Bogen has proved impossible.

Sturdy Monopod

  • Excerpt: The Manfrotto 679B monopod is a very sturdy unit. It extends quickly and smoothly w/ flip locking levers. It is not 63 3/4" tall however. It is 61 5/8" tall. This is somewhat of an issue for me as I'm 6'3" (75") tall.
