        Comments about FEISOL CM-1471 Carbon Fiber Rapid Monopod:

        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.

          Great (so far)

          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!!

                  Comments about FEISOL CM-1471 Carbon Fiber Rapid Monopod:

                  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.
