Poor product

,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: This looked to be a sturdy product and a good value. When unpacked to assemble I found the connections to be plastic and deformed. The head fitting was to shallow to accept the main shafts screw on connection. The threading on the main shaft connection was difficult to fit into my camera directly.

  • Summary: The control head tilts but does not go the full 90 degrees as advertised for portraits and the mounting head is glued on to the monopole which fell off the first time I tried to go portrait.

  • Summary: OK for the price. Should have ordered a longer monopod however because I need to stoop over to use it at full extension. Good value neverless.

  • Summary: I shopped for 3 weeks for the best mono pod for my money. This one appeared the winner and it was. Extremely easy to use. Great value. It does everything I need it to do.

  • Summary: Good quality, good value monopod. Quicker, more compact to use than a tripod, its uses are limited to a few photo situations. Best feature: movable camera connector head for tilting camera. Worst feature: too many collapsible sections for my taste; I always keep the smallest one collapsed, so that's it's a sturdy 4'.

works for me...

  • Excerpt: for video its so light that its not a shlep when I'm not ussing it -- but surprisingly easy to deploy and use when I need it. <br /><br />I thought about a longer one, but they were much heavier and more expensive.<br /><br />I handles my 3.5-4lb. camera -- and it comes w a decent qik release (but I wish that same release was availble as an accesserie -- so I could swap between tripods etc)<br /><br />for how inexpensive it is though, fantasric deal
  • Pros: Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Monopod is easy to carry, sturdy, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a monopod. A minor drawback is that at max height, it can feel a bit unsteady. Leaving just an inch of overlap between the bottom (smallest) two sections can resolve this issue. This still allows the monopod to extend to near 70 inches and feel rock solid. I will probably never need it to be taller than 68 inches ( I am just over 6 ft tall), so this is not an issue for me.
