        Been shooting sports and wildlife for over 12 years and have found this monopod to deliver with high marks in both arenas. The weight of this product is outstanding. Recently out shooting in the wind and snow and it preformed without a hitch, stable and accurate per the 1/2 turn locking abilities. Home run for Induro, thank you.

          Comments about Induro CM34 Carbon 8X CM-Series 4-Section Monopod:

          For many years I have used older aluminum monopods for shooting youth, high school and collegiate athletics (football, soccer, baseball, softball, etc...). As of recent I started running into issues with my older monopod and it's locking mechanisms failing so I made the decision it was time to buy new and consider looking at higher end carbon fiber models if I could find one within my budget.

          I was hoping for lighter weight, 4 section and higher weight capacity compared to most which ran between 11-22 pounds. I looked at all the best Manfrotto and Gitmo had to offer (all great products), but started to notice a few similar featured models by lesser known companies for a fraction of the cost. I've always been a believer in you get what you pay for so needless to say I was a bit skeptical at first, but while comparing models, a rep from B&H had me check out the Induro CM34 Carbon 8X 4-section and I am glad they did. It met all of my criteria with light weight, 4 sections, could support approximately 39 pounds and was within my budget so I decided to purchase it.

          Upon receipt and finally getting a chance to feel it in my hands, you could tell right away that this monopod was very well made and should be able to withstand the demands I would put on it. In addition, I thought it came with a 5 year warranty, but found that if I registered the product online, Induro would warranty this product for a full 10 years!

          Now after having used it for the past few months in various conditions (i.e. rain, snow, etc..), I have been extremely pleased. It is definitely heavy duty and easy to use. It has larger twist-lock locking mechanisms (as opposed to flip levers that I did not want) that are very easy to use with a gloved hand. I shoot a lot in colder weather during late Fall so this feature ended up being a very nice added bonus I did not expect. This is nothing against the "known" top manufacturers in this market, but I would highly recommend this product regardless of your budget. It is extremely well built, easy to use, comes with a great warranty and is very affordable compared to other carbon fiber models with similar specs.

          Comments about Induro CM34 Carbon 8X CM-Series 4-Section Monopod:

          I use this with a Canon 200-400 zoom (with built in 1.4 extender) and it performs excellently. It is much lighter than many comparable monopods, and its taller height allows me, at 6-2, to look through my viewfinder without hunching over.

          The monopod is very stable, and even though it's carbon fiber, is cheaper than many other "name" products. I don't go for the cheapest item - I buy the product that gets the job done. This one does, and at a price point far less than its competitors. Highly recommended.

          Only possibile negative is that it uses twist locks, rather than flip locks, to secure each section of the monopod. The twist locks take a second or two longer to manipulate, so if this is important to you you might want to look at models that have flip locks.

            This monopod is very well built and offered at a great value. I use it for wildlife photography when I need high mobility and not enough time to set up tripod with gimbal head. I paired the CM34 with Kirk Monopod Head for solid support when using telephoto lenses.

                  I have the Induro tripod, so the next logical step was to get the monopod from the same manufacturer, so that it all works together. I was hoping to use the ballhead from my tripod by switching it over to the monopod as needed, but changing the ballhead is more than a notion, so I broke down and bought a second ballhead. Now, with a quick release plate on each camera body, I can quickly switch from tripod to monopod and back with ease. The monopod legs are easy to extend, it fits into my luggage, and after a recent use at the beach, it cleans easily if sand gets into it. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that the screw on top, which I could have screwed directly into the base of the camera, eliminating the need for a ballhead, was too large, so I had to get either a screw adapter or another ballhead. I'm glad I went for the ballhead, because it makes it possible to use the monopod in portrait mode as well as landscape.

                        I purchased this to use with my Nikon D3s along with a Nikon 300 f2.8 vrll to use at sporting events along with some nature shots. Unfortunately I hadn't seen too many reviews on Induro especially the CM34. What I had heard was Induro was a cheaper (in price) product similar to Gitzo. I own a Gitzo tripod and would not own anything but as it has stood the test of time. Not to mention the investment I have in gear however I can honestly say that I am pleasantly surprise by the product in the way it has performed(to date) and the basic feel and similarity to the Gitzo brand without the Gitzo price. I would highly recommend the CM34 to anyone.
