Delkin Devices' Fat Gecko Carbon Fiber Monopod can support up to 30 lb of camera equipment, yet only weighs 12 oz. This 8x carbon fiber support with a Z-weave pattern includes a Fat Gecko locking ball head, and can reach a height of 57". The 5-section design folds down to a very compact 16" for transport and storage. The foot of the monopod has a built-in metal spike with a removable rubber stopper for stability on any kind of surface or terrain. This durable, lightweight monopod is made in the USA.
