Excerpt: I purchased this monopod because I already have a Manfrotto tripod. I like keeping my camera equipment the same. I picked the 680B because of it's maximum height. I don't want to bend down to look through my camera.
Excerpt: I brought this with me on a trip to the Outer Banks and found it to be a perfect addition to my gear. Perfect for when you just need that extra bit of stability for shots from a moving vessel. Not intrusive like a tripod in a group function such as Dolphin Watching.
Excerpt: I have a Manfrotto tripod so when this monopod/head combo went on sale for $79, I snapped it up. The monopod is sturdy and well built. The strap is cloth and strong too. The monopod is heavier than I'd prefer but the weight is not unacceptable.
Excerpt: Really stable and heavy duty monopod but still compact and not too heavy to carry around a whole day! Works also good as a steady cam for camera or gopro I would say its the best monopod in that price class
