A sturdy and lightweight choice for those shooting with long telephoto lenses or in low-light conditions, the MMA49C MACH3 Carbon Fiber Series 4 Monopod from Benro is a versatile option for traveling or the studio.

This carbon fiber support reaches a height of 73.2", closes down to 22.2", and supports up to 44.1 lb. The 9X carbon weave used by Benro maintains a lightweight design at just 1.54 lb, while still maintaining strength and dampening ground vibrations. Opening and closing the 5 sections is quick and easy with the dust resistant twist lock design, and a pivoting rubber foot prevents unwanted slipping.

The closed foam grip gives you a secure hold on the monopod and also insulates your hands on cold days. The mounting plate features a reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mount for mounting a head or attaching directly to a camera.

    MMA49C MACH3 Series 4 Carbon Fiber Monopod is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from BIG burly monopod with a design flaw I ordered one of these, but returned it (thanks B&H, awesome as usual). I have a Benro Travel Angel tripod I like a lot, but this monopod is overkill. The top section is about 1.75 diameter, the foam pad even bigger around. The twist locks are huge, maybe 1.5-2 long; while I can unlock all 4 twist-locks on my Travel Angel at once, I can't grab more than two of these at a time. It comes with a huge foot, again, about 2 across. This *can* be replaced with a normal Benro foot or a spike - the spike from my Travel Angel fit perfectly, as did the small foot (sets of three of either are relatively cheap - e.g. B&H # BESPFT1 is set of spikes). The design flaw is in size of the collar under the top plate relative to the location of the screws for locking your head onto the top plate. The screws are too close to the collar, so you cannot fit the supplied wrench into them to tighten them down, the hex wrench hits the top collar of the monopod under the plate. See the pictures I loaded, one showing the supplied hex wrench unable to fit into the allen screw, the other showing the supplied hex wrench and one I had that I modified, shortening the wrench significantly so it could get into the screws. If you have the ability to shorten a wrench, or if you don't use a head on the monopod, this isn't a big problem. Between the size of the locks and this issue, I chose to return it and go with the Oben CTM-2500. That said, the monopod is rock solid and had so much extra length that you could use this standing on stairs with the foot one, maybe two steps below you, and not need to bend over.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this tripod Quality workmanship and rock solid. It retains the lightness wanted in a monopod while the solid build feels comfortable for that long hike. Great monopod.
