I bought the 685B and, upon attempting to use it for the first time, I found that the lower extension tube would not lock in any extended position. I called Manfrotto and eventually got someone to call me back to discuss the problem.
I'm 6'3" tall and have to fully extend this monopod, Fully extended it is so unstable it can't be used...You can forget about using this on the sidelines of a Football game. This is a great idea but Manfrotto has built a very weak product.
Unstable, Unstable Joints, Weak Clamps
As it is a monopod it has no lens image quality. The rubber foot is easy to detach accidentally, so I've secured my with a line (simply drilled through the rubber foot, stuck a sturdy line through it and made a not on the bottom of the rudder foot and secured the other end around the shaft itself.
A little heavy
I've had this monopod for six months, and I just love it. When doing shoots, really don't have to stop for long to change heights when shooting different vantage points. Fewer missed shots. Less distracting to others, when working in a theater setting.
easy one handed adjustments, infinite adjustment, fast adjustment,
easy to loose foot pad, heavier than most others
