I am doing my homework before I buy a monopod. I discarded a lot of monopods in the process and now is up to 2 choices: 680B vs 676B
(Holds 22 lb) (Weights 1.69 lb) (Round Section)
4-section 20.0" - 60.0" $57
(Holds 10 lb) (Weights 0.80 lb) (Triangle Section)
4-section 18.9" - 60.6" $33
The heaviest lens I own is the 70-200mm f4L IS (1.7lbs) on my 40D (1.7 lbs).
I like the fact the 676B is more compact folded and extends longer, also that is half the weight. I will be using the 3229 head.
I have seen that most of the people in the POTN forums own the 680B instead of the 676B. Is the triangle section weaker than the round section? Why did you chose the 680B if holding 10lbs seems more than enough for almost all lenses.
Thanks for the replies!
