Benro C49F Classic Carbon Fiber Monopod
This carbon fiber support reaches a height of 5.61' (1.71 m), closes down to 19.1" (48.5 cm), and supports 55 lbs (25 kg). It only weighs 1.3 lbs (0.6 kg), so you'll barely know you're carrying it.
Opening and closing the 5 sections is quick and easy with the flip lever lock design, and high elasticity rubber feet prevent slipping (meaning less fatigue for you in the long run).
An attached wrist strap and a closed foam grip give you a secure hold on the monopod (and your camera!), and the grip insulates your hands from the carbon fiber on cold days. The head plate has a reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 screw.
