Simple design

  • Excerpt: These legs fold up and store inside a monopod. I use the 681 monopod with the folding base to support an additional strobe. When using this setup with a camera it is easier to stabilize while holding it. While the legs are in storage, they tend to rattle, I will have to think of a way to quiet them.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fits Well, Solid/Sturdy
  • Cons: Rattles

Folding Base Installation tips

  • Excerpt: I received the 678 folding base for my 680 monopod today. The first problem was removing the original rubber foot without scratching or marking the monopod leg. I used a small vise with protected jaws.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Quality, Unfolds Quickly

  • Excerpt: Easy to install on my monopod by following the instructions that came with the unit. The hardest thing was removing the rubber tip on the monopod itself but a pair of channel locks did the trick.

  • Excerpt: The base is perfect if you want to stand the monopod up. It is very sturdy. Nice how you can fold the feet up into it so it will fit in a small tripod bag, Only negitive thing about it's heavy because it is made of steel. Maybe they could make it out of aluminum?
  • Pros: Easy to Use
