Excerpt: Very nice monopod. No complaints. The legs on the bottom add much more versatility and the monopod can even balance on them without assistance. The release plate is pretty cool too. You can take the camera right off instead of having to slide it through the head.
Pros: Compact, Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought the Benro monopod that has a tilting base too and on the first day of usage the tilting base plate got stuck and I sent it back and got the Manfrotto Monopod . The monopod can stand autonomously without falling sideways which is a great plus if you are shooting with a B camera.
Pros: Lightweight, Opens Quickly, Strong Construction

Pros: Compact, Fits 501 Plate Kinda, Strong Construction
