      Comments about Gitzo G1220.130 "Big-Foot" All Terrain Shoe - for Series 2 & 3 Monopods:

      It is made for sand and works absolutely amazing. I love it!!! The problem is that the sand gets in between the rubber foot and the metal piece and wears away the rubber. I sent it back to Gitzo three times in 9 month. Every time they sent me back a new one and every time it would break after three months. Don't waste your money.

          Comments about Gitzo G1220.130 "Big-Foot" All Terrain Shoe - for Series 2 & 3 Monopods:

          This thing will help you float above mud, sand, or snow...but it's still not a three legged attachment like many of the Manfrotto monopods have...so my review is lower b/c I want this to be something that it is not...but it's better than nothing, which is why I'm okay reviewing for being something that it's not. I almost lost it on the first day! I was in the mud (working on a doc following a professor with a class that was harvesting seaweed for food)...and as I picked it up, the foot stayed behind. I almost lost it. It snaps off too easily. Also, to use for video, I would've hoped it would articulate more smoothly. Since it doesn't, this is a problem. I find myself lossening the threading so that it will pan...but doing so means that it shakes a lot side to side, which is very annoying and you have to fight against it. All they need to do is design a better foot (with articulating legs) and some sort of pan drag on it that screws into this same attachment. For still work, i'd rate this 4-stars---the fact that it snaps out of the ball would be the reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars...but for video, it's barely usable. I just don't have any other options right now.

            I did not get this footing when I bought the Monopod. I was amazed at the quality of the product. It looks as if it will last for years. Adding the foot to greatly improved stability.

              This foot has made my Gitzo monopod much more useable as it has stabilized it taking indoor pictures.

                It makes the thing soooo much more stable. Would be 5 stars but it's very stiff and takes some effort to move it. Gets a bit better as it is used.

                  Comments about Gitzo G1220.130 "Big-Foot" All Terrain Shoe - for Series 2 & 3 Monopods:

                  I bought this foot to provide enhanced support to a 7D + 300/2.8 combo when mounted on a Gitzo CF monopod. I have previously experienced that the monopod would sag into loose sand and I'd have to adjust my pose. Initial solution was to fit a tennis ball to the 'pod.. but that's a bit like fitting a roof carrier on a Rolls. The foot diameter measures 60mm / 2.4" and can pivot to allow for 'pod movement. Being made by the same crafty Italian whom assembles all those silky smooth tripods, this simple item really does round off my monopod exactly as intended. No 'but'.
