I was able to borrow one of these during a recent workshop and was impressed enough to get one on order as soon as I got home. I put it to use for an action pistol match and really appreciated the light weight and quick adjustment over the 2 day event. Great looking and solid to work from!
The best monopod I have ever owned. I have own a handful over the years but never could find one that I really liked there was alway something I didn't like about them. I needed a good monopod that could handle the weight of the big heavy lenses i use (400 2.8, 600F4, 800F5.6) in all weather conditions (-48*/117*)and still be light weight. This monopod can handle it with ease and is lightweight. Being it's so lightweight and compact it super easy to travel with on flights. But yet still strong enough and long enough to handle anything situation I have use it in. Once in the field it adds the stability needed for good steady shooting even extended all the way out its still rigid enough to handle the weight of a 600F4.
So glad I purchased this monopod. It is portable, able to support heavy my camera & long lens, and tall enough for any situation. The TR34ML along with the HM1 Tilt head make the perfect monopod for hiking and wildlife photography. Thanks PMG!
Love this monopod-it holds my gear well-is super light -love love love it !
I use this lens to hold my Canon 400 2.8. The lens weighs approximately 15 lbs and the monopod is holding up beautifully. Pro Media Gear helped me get it quickly and provided 1st Class customer service. Will visit this store often!
