The Berlebach Model 113 3-Section Wooden Monopod will appeal to the discriminating shooter. It is a beautifully finished piece of German craftsmanship, made by Berlebach, who has been making wooden ash tripods for over a century.
Handling a wood tripod in extremes of heat or cold is quite a different experience than that of a metal or even carbon fiber tripod. But the best reason to choose wood over any other material is for its incredible ability to absorb vibrations. A wooden tripod placed in a shallow stream may be vibrating quite a bit where the legs meet the water, but up at the column it is rock steady.
This monopod features an integrated tilt head that enables vertical tilt, a rubber foot with steel spike, and a standard 1/4"-20 camera screw.
- The integrated wooden tilt head results in a significant weight advantage over add-on metal heads
