The 424 was delivered today looks awesome, very strong and looks great

It is a bit of a lump but not too heavy and it is pretty rigid. Much cheaper than Gitzo and they don't make a mono pod this size - which is why I bought mine!


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

I am wondering when unlocking the twist locks is there a bit of a catch? I can feel it a little if opening a little slow if I unlock fast not as much.

FWIW, my P-424 unlocks very smoothly. To unlock, it only requires about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn or rotation for each section (which I do with just one twist of my hand). Locking each section is slower as each section must be done independently but again only about a 1/4 to 1/2 turn is required. I have no complaints with it, works great.

Yes I do about a 1/2 I am not worried about it but just curious might be because it is new. I have a Sirui tripod coming Monday so I can compare

I was thinking of this monopod and would like to know if the spike is a 3/8 inch thread and if can be removed completely. I would like to put a video three legged foot on the bottom such as the ST1 http://www.ebay.com …ipods&hash=item​27d5366b09 (external link)

Thank you unfortunately the feet on that model aren't removable so it comes in a little large to go in my baggage.
