So when I was at walmart picking up some plexiglass photo frames for this mod. And decided to stroll through the photo section, and saw the Tragus 67" monopod for $15, and seeing as I do not have a monopod and would like one for my biking, and landscape photog I thought I'd try it out...worse case I take it back in 30 days .
-Extends to 67" (5.5ft / 1.7m)
-Supports 5lbs (under spec'ed...go farther down for example)
-Rubber foot with ground spike
-Quick Release leg locks
-1/2" 40 screw mount
-Foam hand grip and wristband
-5 year limited warranty
Pros (so far)
Cons (so far)
no adjustable head
fully extended is not quite as rigid
When I picked up the packaging I noticed that it was bloodly light, I don't have a gram number on it (I can try to get one), but it def is light.
Also due to the fact it is in the packaging of the devil it was a challenge opening it without cutting myself, or nicking it (which I somewhat failed at). Which also brings me to the finish which seems like a beadblasted anno finish, and I know from finishes like this on paintball on biking parts that it hold up for a long time...of course that's if it's done right...time will tell.
The closed length is 21" and the fully open is of course 57". Luckily I don't need it all the way extended only being 5'11" since it doesn't seem as study/ridgid on the last extension fully extended. So I marked the lower section where I like it so I can easily keep the last extension as small and rigid as possible.
