Pros: The mono-pod stick is fine for a value option.
Cons: The mount is all molded plastic and the relatively soft base is augured (profanity to use the sc re wed word) onto a threaded post. This failed after a few hours of rigorous use and I had to repair it with a locknut and some JB weld.
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'.
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.
