  • Excerpt: The fancy carbon fibre charcoal black.Feels much stronger than 11 lb. limit .Comparable to my Gitzo,less expensive and with clamps instead of twist locks.Mannesium castings and easy to use clamps make this a sweetie.Balance like a feather.Tho not as light as the Gitzo this monopod will be perfect...

  • Excerpt: This was an additional purchase to supplement an older Manfrotto monopod which I still use. I wanted it for hiking and situations where weight is a factor I purchased a light weight head and everything works well.

flip locks kill this monopod

8 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I used this monopod for about 4 years. Weight, size, speed of set up were fine. I always preferred flip locks for the legs vs twist locks. However, the flip locks on this monopod were very hard to maintain due to dirt that got into mechanism. Cleaning very hard, need hex wrenches.
  • Pros: Compact, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Weak Clamps

Solid Monopod

24 July 2014
  • Excerpt: It's often hard to travel with a tripod since many public places will not let you use one...hence the opportunity for a monopod. Just like everything else that Manfrotto makes (I own two Manfrotto Tripods) this is well built.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tricky Screw Mount, Very Large Head Mounting
