      Comments about Delkin Devices Fat Gecko Carbon Fiber Monopod:

      You hold this by the very top and just let go of everything but the head and it self assembles like magic. It is bound to put the WOW on everyone around. It is light as might be expected. It comes with a rubber stopper over the quite sharp heavy duty metal point that begs to be shoved into the ground.

      The main problem is it is one height. About eight inches below my eye level. I find monopods like this ideal for rotational photographs with something like a Sony NEX camera that has excellent stitching software built right in. But I often find eye level is not what I want. So I took off one star for it apparently being stuck at one height. However the height it does have is perfect for most things.

      And even with the head on it this thing is quite light and compact yet has a solid feel when it self assembles.

        Great device with excellent support for most dslrs. This is my go to device for short trips and hikes since it is incredibly light.

          Comments about Delkin Devices Fat Gecko Carbon Fiber Monopod:

          Light weight, quick and strong.
          It certainly does what I was hoping for. (pole for the GoPro)

          Not sure how long the elastic that holds it all together will last or how it will cope if it gets wet.
