      First I bought Really Right Stuff's monopod which while premium quality was overkill for my needs and too big to be easily packable and concealable. The Sirui and Induro CM25 looked like the next best thing so I bought both to decide.

      When they arrived I did some basic testing. Out of the box the Sirui was a couple of inches shorter and more compact than the Induro, yet fully extended it was about 3 inches taller. This was obvious from the specs but I'm skeptical and had to see for myself :) I was specifically looking for a monopod that I could throw in luggage or even a small backpack, or one that I could carry around at my kids school without looking like I'm carrying a baseball bat. These two are just the right size, the Sirui even better, to be carried discreetly.

      They both weigh about the same and the carbon fiber seems of similar quality, 6-8 ply I think. Fully extended with my 5D MkIII and a 70 - 300 L on was obviously no problem for either of these. I felt like adding another 5-10 pounds would be welcomed. I pushed a lot of physical pressure on them and neither budged, both feeling equally sturdy.

      The leg locks on the Induro felt good, I like them a bit better than the Sirui, which are like RRS but smaller. The Induro grips were too big for my liking though, and the 4 of them took up a lot more space than the 5 locking grips on the Sirui.

      Sirui's grips felt good and worked, and even though it has 6 sections compared to Induro's 5, it staggered the sizing well - it seemed to me that the thinnest section was no thinner than Induro's, and the widest section may have had more diameter.

      In the end I packed up the Induro and mailed it back. All else practically equal, the Sirui wins being 2 full inches smaller when compact, and almost 3 full inches taller when extended! That put my camera, on an RRS monopod head, above my eye level a good distance for getting birds, planes, or other UFOs. It also felt a tad lighter. Oh, and another plus - the Sirui has a fatter foot that hides a ground spike, which smoothly extends with an easy twist.

      Overall the Sirui felt well-designed and engineered, solid, and was more compact with better features.

      Hard to believe it holds 22lbs

      Monopod is really light and compact but how tight I fasten - it always folds together if the gear is over around 12 lbs (so ca. 6 lbs rests on monopod).

        Comments about Sirui P-326 6-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

        When it's closed it is really compact and easily fit in your camera bag. For me it is a dual purpose gear. You can use it places where the tripod is't allowed or if you use a heavy lens with low shutter speed. Recently I'm using it as an off camera flash holder in street portraiture. I like the fact that in winter or just in cold weather the carbon fiber isn't as cold and it has an extra neoprenish handle cover.

          Comments about Sirui P-326 6-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

          This is the first manufactured monopod that I have handled and had other than my trusty homemade wood walking stick one with a monopod head on it. The fit and finish and light weight is awesome BUT, with my 400 F2.8 on it, it is a bit wobbly in the leg while you are maneuvering it around and tilting the lens up and down causing a side load on the leg. You need to have the head tension dangerously loose to avoid the side load on the leg. My lens and camera weigh 15lbs which is under the rated 22lbs. I guess I was expecting a little more of a solid feel than that. I am hoping to avoid having to put a gimbal head on it due the bulk that that creates for handling the monopod when not in use but this would solve the side loading the leg issue. As others have said, I see the stitching coming loose already on the hand strap which is rather a pathetic quality control problem that would be very easy to fix at the manufacturing stage.

            I was looking for a monopod that would not stick above my Lowepro AV 102 slingshot bag, this fits the bill nicely.
            It is light, easy to deploy and open, I will get a tilt head for it later, but as a monopod is its great, love the grip, and strap makes it easy to hang on to

              For the times when a tripod is not the answer and you need a bit more stability, this is a great solution, particularly when size and weight are factors. This is my second Sirui product (Sirui tripod - T-025)and I am impressed with the quality.

                I am using the Sirui Monopod and monopod head to support Panasonic's 4/3's 100-300 lens (200-600mm). along with a cable release and a custom made collar I have fully stabilized the package. I increase to the ISO to use a 1/1000th SS. This combination costs 20 - 30 % of "big name" competitors.

                      I carefully select my equipment. With limited funds I cannot afford to redo purchases. The only thing I worried about this was the screw height adjusters vs. quick release. I was willing to return & spend the extra $ on a RRS (or equal) monopod later if this wasn't well made. I just purchased a 7dmii, 70-200 2.8ii, 24-70 2.8ii for my girlfriend. It was important for her to have something light, strong (and short) enough for her hiking. The day after Christmas she felt the screw adjustments were too difficult to use and immediately we checked for another model with quick releases. However, after checking spec for spec she quickly decided this was worth getting use to. It is really light. Closes up to a small size and extends to more than enough height. Its strength makes for a good walking stick. She did not want to give it up. We are going to put extra money into RRS quick release and monopod head which will cost more than twice the cost of this monopod. Even if it takes a bit more time to make the purchase. Dollar for dollar if you can deal with the screwing around this is a pretty nice piece of equipment. A 5th star would have come if it were quick release.

                          A great choice at the advice of the ever helpful Joshua. I came to the store to purchase another brand after having researched it. Joshua logicallly explained and demonstrated the Sirui being the better product. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I can feel the quality.

                            Comments about Sirui P-326 6-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod:

                            I am going to use it to support my DSL camera with telephoto lens. I did not find any problems with this product. This monopod is solid build, easy to extend and easy to collapse. It is 15.5 inches long in collapsed stage and light weight not just to carry on with rest of my photo gear, but also light as a hiking cane.

                              The Sirui P-326-6 monopod is lightweight, compact, easy to carry, and fully extended is just the right height for me. The hand strap rotates and that is a plus. This monopod is far superior to the other monopod that I have been using. A very good product.

                                Best value for a carbon fiber monopod. Extremely light and strong, which makes it convenient when hauling heavy telephoto lens around field during sporting events. Have other Sirui products and each perform as well (and better) than Manfrotto and other brands, except Sirui costs significantly less!

                                  This monopod is all what you want from this type of gear: solida but lightweight. The P-326 has it all. This monopod can be nagn fro your backpack or bag and you won't even notice it weight. When it cakes the time to use ir, is it very easy tu use. You can open all its segments basically with one hand.

                                      I think P-326 is the most compact with excellent quality. Everything is well designed and there is no complaint at all. What I impressed is when I twist the lock, I feel a click for telling me unlock and lock. This enables to use very quickly.

                                        This is a very nice carbon fiber monopod that collapses-down short enough so that I can get it inside my carry-on bag. It is certainly well made and I have no doubt that this monopod is adequate for a pro DSLR and a big lens. A bargain at this price!

                                          When I am out and about with my camera's it is hard to lug my tripod. The small karabiner on the monopod's safety hand strap clips to a belt loop and is ever-ready. In a minute it is screwed to the camera, extended, and ready. Eliminates 90% of camera shake. I LOVE IT!
