The GM4552L Series 4 Monopod from Gitzo is a 5-section, lightweight carbon fiber support designed as the tallest model in Gitzo's monopod line up. Utilizing Gitzo's patented G-Lock Ultras, the GM4552L has the ability to support up to an impressive 66 lb while weighing just 1.6 lb.

The monopod reaches a maximum height of 74.8", allowing the user to shoot above crowds or from a slightly elevated position. As all Gitzo monopods, it features a reversible 1/4"-20 & 3/8"-16 mounting thread for adding an optional head if even more height or articulation is needed. Despite its impressive height, it's 5-section design allows the monopod to collapse down to just 22" for transport or storage.

Maintaining Gitzo's reputation for strength, the GM4552L utilizes 6X Carbon eXact tubing and patented G-Lock Ultra designs to ensure professional performance without the bulk. The 6-layer carbon weave allows the monopod to maintain maximum strength while keeping weight to an absolute minimum, while the G-Lock Ultras also add to the tubing's strength by providing a rigid connection between leg sections and protecting the joints from dust, dirt, and moisture.

At the monopod's base is a redesigned rubber foot that features a pivoting ball-joint for smooth tilts and twists. Users may also remove the foot if necessary and replace it with optional rubber feet or an optional metal spike. The GM4552L also features Gitzo's standard textured hand grip for enhanced ergonomics and a removable wrist strap for increased security.

I use monopods both for stills and video photography, and to this end I own several different brands. The Gitzo is well made, operates smoothly, and its twist lock feature is easier to use than latches, while limiting the tendency that latches have to get caught on trouser legs.

Get what you pay for.

Exactly what you'd expect from top of the line Gitzo. It's substantial, but way less of a nightmare than trekking around with the full tripod. Fit's the full sized Wimberly like a glove and the foot is rock solid.
