This Robus RCM-439 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod with SBM-001 Stabilizing Base kit from B&H combines a 65" carbon fiber monopod with a folding, 3-legged base. The base's integrated ball joint and rubber-tipped feet allow the camera to be swiveled and tilted without sacrificing any of the monopod's stability or decrease its 36-pound load capacity.
The RCM-439 4-Section Carbon Fiber Monopod by Robus quickly extends to a height of 65" with a simple turn of the twist-locks. The 4-section design provides a strong platform with minimum bending or bowing, and the sturdy, 10x carbon fiber tubes offer rigidity and strength for a stable platform while out and about on location. It supports equipment weighing up to 39 lb and is supplied with interchangeable rubber and spike feet for surefooted point of contact with the ground. The head plate features a reversible 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 threaded mounting stud for optional heads or lens collars to extend its capability. The included wrist strap provides additional security when performing one-handed operation, and the convenient belt clip allows you to quickly carry the monopod by your side or on your pack, ready for action. Additionally, the monopod folds down to 21.1" for optimal portability and storage.
The SBM-001 Stabilizing Base for Monopods from Robus screws into most monopods with a 3/8"-16 threaded socket and offers enhanced stability while shooting with a monopod. The three folding legs open and lock into place when it's time to shoot, then conveniently fold up along the monopod for easy transport. Nonslip rubber feet provide extra traction on slick surfaces like gym floors or pool decks. The integrated ball joint allows the camera to be swiveled and tilted without losing the advantage of the monopod's stability. The ball joint lock prevents the monopod from tilting under a heavy load for greater control and can lock to a fixed position for extra control and stability. The ball joint's friction control allows the base's flexibility to be adjusted to suit the weight of the camera and lens combination. The legs unlock with the push of a button for rapid deployment, then fold up along the monopod, adding only minimal length to the rig. When removed from the monopod, these lightweight legs fold up to a compact 6.3", so they'll easily fit into a gear bag, back pack, or even a jacket pocket.
