This is a solid monopod. The only thing that would make it better would be an option to lock the fluid base in position when desired (just a suggestion for Manfrotto). But it's still great as is.
The rotating feature of the monopod is easy to adjust. It will stand erect balancing on its feet even when more than one camera is mounted.
I shoot sports. Horse racing and Minor league baseball. I need a fast set-up for my shooting. I shoot with Nikon and Canon cameras, and some of my lens for these camera are very heavy. I need some support for the above and the Manfrotto Monoplod is PREFECT for the above.
Many, many years ago I did a job where a guy had one of these. After one day of shooting with it I never went back to a tripod. I mainly shoot wedding, promo vid's, and the occasional music video. A tripod still has its place in my bag of tools but I use this monopod about 80% of the time.
I have a carbon fiber monopod, but missed the increased stability with the tripod. I took for granted that one could lock the base. Not being able to do that is a major disappointment, and it removes the main advantage over my monopod in addition to being considerably heavier.
Sturdy build and good quality. It's great while your holding it but the swivel doesn't lock. So if your wanting to have your camera free standing then this isn't for you. You can also use it to reach higher up and keep your camera stabilized as long as your holding it.
