          As an amateur photographer/student I am using my Vanguard Monopod frequently on varied terrain. It is well-made and durable. While there may be lighter monopods with quicker mounting systems, I find this Vanguard product exceptionally useful and reliable for the price.

            Comments about Vanguard Espod AM-233 Aluminum Monopod w/Tilt Head:

            I didn't gave a monopod yet and wanted a starter one. After reading the reviews on this one, I decided to get it and I'm pleased! I used it for a sport reel I'm putting together and it was great. I have a Nikon D90 and it didn't add any more weight. There were no shakes ... and being 5'5 it helped me get eye-level with my 6'3" subject (lol). So far, I love it -- especially the belt clip, which came in so handy!

                    Comments about Vanguard Espod AM-233 Aluminum Monopod w/Tilt Head:

                    I needed a monopod to help me steady my long lens shots when the use of a tripod was not permitted. This one works for me. It is lightweight and opens quickly. I like having 2 quick flip leg locks instead of the 3 or more twist locks. I have added a Kirk quick release clamp to the Tilt Head to use the quick release plates mounted to the tripod feet of my 70-200 and 80-400 lenses. My max load is a D700 w/ battery pack and 80-400 lens. Have had no problems supporting that weight.
