The CM-1471 Carbon Fiber Rapid Monopod from Fiesol is a lightweight, four-section camera support that makes it possible to capture rock-steady images without needing to carry or set up a tripod.

The maximum height is 5.57", and the monopod supports up to 24.25 lb, so you can mount any DSLR camera with most lenses, a point & shoot model, or even a compact camcorder.

For fine control, you can attach a head to the monopod's reversible 3/8" & 1/4" mounting screw. The monopod collapses to just 21.65", so you can stow it in most carry-on bags.

      Comments about FEISOL CM-1471 Carbon Fiber Rapid Monopod:

      If your like me & just getting around to buying a monopod this is the one to get. After shopping & comparing the specs on them all this is the best bang for the buck. I'm using it with my Red Dragon so I wanted something that had a good weight capacity & that was light & of course for the best price.

          Comments about FEISOL CM-1471 Carbon Fiber Rapid Monopod:

          Got this monopod to use with a Canon 7DII + 100-400 lens. The monopod is rated for a load capacity of 24 lb. and the camera/lens combo is 5 lb. Maybe a little overkill but I wanted something solid and the CM-1471 delivers. And with plenty of height, 67". The twist leg locks are solid and so far I have not noticed any slipping when supporting my camera/lens combo. It comes with a padded carrying case with strap which is nice. The only "negative" is that it did not come with some sort of protection for the attachment bolt. But a trip to the hardware store for a cap nut will take of that. Very impressed with the quality of this monopod.

              Purchased as a replacement for a "famous" pro brand carbon fiber monopod that was much more expensive and less quality. The Feisol is light, very strong, high quality, with an aluminum mounting plate that is solid.

                  I have switched over to Feisol for all my tripods and this monopod.Products are well made, easy to operate, strong and lightweight. Copst about half of Gitzo and others. Feisol customer serviuce is outstanding. They respond to email quickly and although I have not had any service issues others report quick response to issue and quickly shipped, free replacement parts.

                  Having tried a few mono pods, I can assure you that this one is the real deal. It's REAL carbon fiber and it looks great. The shaft is thick and strong. Be careful, a lot of companies will claim carbon fiber In this price range but most are composite carbon fiber.

                    Just like their tripods, Feisol builds an awesome carbon fiber monopod. I put on a RRS head but this is not necessary if you are only tilting it 10 degrees.

                      I have been using this monopod for sporting evens to support my 70-200mm lens. It is quite thick but also light. I like the quick release strap on the carry handle. The twist locking mechanism has been very easy to deal with and I much prefer it over the clamp system.

                      If you are like me and looking to buy your first "good" monopod then I'd highly recommend giving this one a try.

                        After several aluminum monpods, this is my first carbon fiber and it's terrific.
                        First thing I noticed was the light weight. Even though I never considered my aluminum ones heavy, this Feisol CM-1471 is significantly lighter and since the first time I used it was shooting a golf tournament with a 400mm f/2.8 lens, the weight savings was appreciated.
                        Equipment for some images was Canon 1Dx, 400mm lens, plus 1.4x TC with no sign of struggle from the Feisol CM-1471.

                          Comments about FEISOL CM-1471 Carbon Fiber Rapid Monopod:

                          I replaced an old aluminum Bogen monopod with the Feisol CM-1471. While the Bogen, which I no longer can find a model number on due to wear, was built like a tank, I had some issues with it. For one, it has the flip clamps. Over the years I have had to tighten those down to keep the legs from slipping that the flip levers are difficult to open. Recently I was out photographing birds and the aluminum monopod got so cold I had to return it to the car.
                          The Feisol is lighter than the aluminum Bogen. I like the anti-rotation leg lockes which seem to be the exact knock off of my Gitzo 3 series tripod. I can open the three locks with one hand and lock them when collapsed with one hand. The carbon fiber pod does not contract cold like the aluminum pod. I use a RRS monopod head on the top of the Feisol. My 1d MkIV, 500mm IS with 2x converter is steady and secure on top of the monopod.

                                I have my 300 f2.8 with canon 1dx and it holds the weight just fine. I had a really expensive cf monopod that fell apart in less then a year - save yourself 200.00 and buy this one!!

                                  I use this shooting sports, most frequently with a 400/2.8 lens. I had some concern the twist locks might be slow, as I continual adjust, but they work great -- one hand (plus the one on the lens) and you can adjust in a few seconds. The overall feel says "heavy duty", the foam grip has a good solid, not squishy feel. The included rubber foot rests on a wide plastic bottom (i.e. won't cut through like some brands due from sharp metal), but it is also threaded. Get the steel spike as well (cheap but separate), and the reversible/screw-in foot then becomes more versatile. I am 6' and most of the time I'm shooting about 4-6 inches short of full extension - just enough for the days when you may be shooting on a downhill slope. They even include the wrench to reverse the screw for direct camera mount. I decided to risk this (despite the low price compared to others) because of very satisfactory experience with their CF tripods over the years. Overall very happy with it, and their tripods.

                                    As a sports shooter I like a lightweight, steady mono that quickly extends and retracts. Not only does it do these things, but if FEELS marvelous in my hands. And there's just something about the sound each section makes when it extends and collapses. Maybe it's just a man thing, but dang. And my sidekicks are already jealous of it. I expect to see more of them with Feisol products this fall.

                                        The monopod is well made, lightweight and compact. The twist locks allow quick setup and easy adjustments. I use this with my Nikon d700 & 300mm lens with various teleconverters. I'm very happy with this setup. The padding is great for when you carry the gear on your shoulder.
