A good bargain

I bought a number of them as they were good bargains but of good quality.

Best purchase I made so far

Absolutely excellent and superb material and portability. Works as a gem in every way possible. Best investment for an outdoor photographer. Compass works great and as a great stick for hiking in snow and ice. Best purchase so far for my Sony a7r3 with Sony 200-60mm lens

Sturdy and Well Made, But...

PROS: Very well made w/ quality materials. Plenty tall. Robust sections are excellent for stability and weight bearing. Smooth & easy unlocking, extending, retracting, and locking of sections. When retracted, it could serve as a self-defense baton in a pinch. Extended, it can help you ward off a bad dog. Advertised weight is spot on. Phenomenal price on sale! CONS: -- The 1/4-20 screw for mounting a head or camera is not quite long enough. Doubt I'll ever carry this monopod slung over my shoulder while Canon 5D with L lens is onboard. [1 star deduction] -- Although 1.4 lbs sounds reasonable, it actually feels heavy when in hand. The many pros logically come at the cost of weight. -- Grip is a little thick for smaller hands.

GOOD FOR THE PRICE!

Wish it comes with switchable mount screw size.

Just what I was looking for.

I had been looking for a reasonable quality walking stick/monopod that I could use only as necessary as a monopod but still a good lightweight walking stick. This fits the requirement, especially as I got the purple one on sale for $29.

Pretty good for the price.

It met all my expectations except the threaded stud is barely long enough to engage my camera bodies and tripod collar for 2 of my long lenses. It does engage, but not by much. Other than that, it appears well made and sturdy.

Good

This one was great. Unfortunately the next one I got looked like it had been run over by a bus.

Almost Perfect

Well built, and SOLID. Looks like it will last for years. Great for photography, videography, even as a hiking staff. Just don't rely on the compass. It simply doesn't work reliably when the top piece is attached to the staff. I think the screw is magnetic and interferes with the operation of the compass.

question

Will the Benro B2 Double Action Ballhead fit the item?
Asked by: Anonymous
The male mounting thread on the MeFoto WalkAbout is smaller in size than the female threading on the B2 Double Action ballhead. We do sell an adapter bushing so that you may then mount the head onto the monopod. See the link below for details on the adapter bushing:http://bhpho.to/P15Lox

question

How do I remove the compass knob?
Asked by: Anonymous
The compass knob top simply unscrews. the center of the knob top is threaded. so with one hand on the stick and one on the knob it should come off. once off, the 1/4 thread sticking out of the stick is what you'll use for other tripod heads.

question

Is there a spike foot ?
Asked by: Grant
No, it's a rubberized conical foot which comes to a point. It's still a great monopod for the money.
