  • Excerpt: I bought this item as a gift for my daughter who is an avid hiker. She also uses it in museums where permitted. It's sturdy enough for most digital cameras and some DSLRs / SLRs.

  • Excerpt: Using this monopod to stabilize a Nikon 70-200mm AF-S f2.8 lens for ice hockey action shots. It works well and is more than strong enough to support my lens & camera combo. The included ball head is a nice feature that gives this monopod added value. It is not the most compact or the lightest of weight but at [$] it is a very good value.
  • Pros: Included ball head, Strong Construction

Solid little unit

  • Excerpt: This is a solid little monopod for a great price! It is very light and compact. I have used it mainly for sports, and I removed the ballhead so I could mount my lens collar directly to the monopod. My only minor complaint is I wish it were a little taller; I am 6'3" and it could use another few inches for me. Of course I would just about be there if I put the ballhead back on, but then it wouldn't be nearly as stable and solid!

Good ol' stick

  • Excerpt: This is a reasonably priced monopod for what you get. Slik continues to toe the fine line of cheap but quality construction for a good price and sturdy products a bit more expensive but reasonable. If you are a walk around photographer this should be in your bag. I could probably due without the ball head on a monopod but thats personal opinion. Buy this... use it... It won't be the greatest thing in your pile of gear but it's something you'll be happy to have.

Top Notch

  • Excerpt: This is a wonderful monopod that is very easy to carry. Very rigid and the ball head, though smallish, is quite robust. Opens super quickly and is so compact you tend to take it than leave it.

Good value

  • Excerpt: I bought this for travel/hiking, possibly some sports photography in the future. I haven't been able to use it in the field yet, but have messed around with at home some. For the money, it exceeded my expectations upon receipt. My only minor complaint so far is that the cork material at the top of the ballhead which "protects" the camera seems to be slightly wearing in spots, after mounting the camera only once. Maybe I over-tightened, not really sure.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
