          Comments about Slik Pro Pod 600:

          Id picked this up for my father a year ago so that he could test run it for me. He loved its solid design, and ease of use. Also was a great walking stick hiking the rugged trails around Phoenix.

          Now i have picked one for me and couldn't agree with him more. Solid, easy to use and supports a good amount of equipment as my camera is bit more heavy duty than my fathers. For the price, I didn't see anything out there comparable and as well built. Love the padded grip especially for longer hikes and using it as a walking stick

          Great monopod.

          Comments about Slik Pro Pod 600:

          the older version was heavier than the current product - with OS I thought I'd only need a tripod for those times when time exposure or extreme stability was an issue - I was wrong even with OS on all my lenses the monopod is still a viable tool.

          My only con is the older version came with a real nice custom fitted case (not a small tripod case but slimmer) - the current product does not and there is none offered as an option.

            I decided to look into a pod that was made by Slik since I have a tripod from them that I am loving. This monopod is sturdy, well built, at a great height for me (6'1) and lightweight enough to carry around anywhere.

            I highly recommend.

                So far I have used it for macro photography and it is a lot easier getting set than with a traditional tripod. I plan to use it for sports photography with my 70-200 f2.8 lens as well. While I've only taken a few test shots with that lens so far it is nice and the results are quite good. Love the toggles for lowering the leg. Perfect size for pretty much any photographic situation. It gets quite tall and also pretty close to the ground, both very helpful so far.

                  For two days, I carried this on my back in a backpack in NYC. Did not even know it was there. Used it several times and it worked perfect, especially for long distance shots in Central Park. Highly recommend this item.

                  Comments about Slik Pro Pod 600:

                  I did lots of research on monopods before deciding on the Slik Pro Pod 600, and am not regretting it at all. So far I've only used it about three times and can honestly say that I don't have anything bad to say about it. For the amount of money you pay for this, you won't find a better product, very well built, easy to use, and so easy to carry around with it attached to my telephoto lense. Definitely a thumbs up!

                  I use this product with combination of SH-705E (3-Way Pan/Tilt Head) for cases whan I can not use my regular tripod (much faster setup, not allowed, etc). it gives me arround 2-4 steps which makes the entire difference!

                        This is a very sturdy monopod, yet it's light and it's not too long when folded. I especially like the fact that it has levers instead of turn cams to lock the extension. I prefer this on tripods too. I have no complaints. Tried it at B&H along with lots of other monopods and picked it because of weight, sturdiness and price.

                          I do sports photography and never thought I would need a monopod until I was carring my equipment around for 6 hours. The Pro Pod 600 was just what I needed not only does it hold the weight of my camera with no problem it also gives me a much better picture. I don't know why I waited so long to buy one, I always have it with me.

                            I use this monopod for shooting pics at my son's football games. Can't believe the quality of the pictures compared to last year when I was shooting without one. A great investment!

                              What a difference shooting pictures of my son playing football as compared to last year w/o a monopod. Love the support!

                                  I use this monopod with a Mamiya RB67 Pro SD, a quite heavy camera. The quick-release clamps are really nice; I was concerned they might not withstand the weight of my camera, but I was wrong - they hold the sections firmly! It's very light too - I thought about spending the extra cash for the carbon fiber version, but the difference is only 1/2 pound - not much - yet it's metal! (Maybe it's just me, but I trust metal over any kind of fiber/composite.) It's compact enough when collapsed, yet it extends very long - maybe too long - but you can always set it as short as you want, and the extra length is always available if you ever need it in an unusual circumstance. To make a long story short: outstanding and versatile!

                                    This monopod is more than adequate for my D300s with the 18-200mm lens. It is very sturdy, lightweight, well made, easy to transport and setup. My Slik Standard Ballhead II is a perfect match. It is the same diameter as the monopod. When you don't want to carry a tripod, this monopod is a great alternative.

                                      A monopod is not rocket science, but I found this monopod to be excellent. It is light weight and the construction seems very solid. It is very easy to use.
