This item is of great quality, I purchased an inexpensive monopod at first but got rid of it pretty quickly. This monopod keeps my canon t5i with battery grip and my Canon 300mm L lens very steady and secured. I am using with a Pro Master Ball Head.

They claim the monopod has a chunky rubber foot. Ha! It lasted for about two weeks before the lower leg section basically cut a hole in it....causing plenty of dirt and clay to get jammed up in the leg. The lower section then was unable to retract, so I was forced to remove it to clear out the filth and muck. Must have lost something in the process as now the lower leg will just slide right out. No stop.

The foam grip might work well as a grip, but don't expect it to offer any real cushion when carrying the camera on your shoulder. It is rather thin and wimpy.

I had been using the classic Bogen 3018 for 25 years and its "chunky" rubber foot is still intact. I think I'll be going back to it...

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

Have only used this a few times. Seems to be a well made solid monopod. I use it with a Nikon D7100 with a Nikon 200-500mm lens. No problem holding the weight. Considering adding a tilt or ball head. Only 4 stars because I cannot assess the durability as yet. That takes extended use.

Excellent mono-pod, very light but strong. Feels well made, soft grip is definitely a bonus and the price was most certainly right. Recommended.

Plate snapped right of the leg!

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

I had this monopod for about 6 months already, and it was great. Very sturdy and did the job well. I load it with about 5lb, which is well under the 26.4lb load capacity.

A couple of days ago while using it to shoot a wedding, the plate just snapped right off of its leg. The part of the plate which connects to the leg just snapped! I was very lucky that my equipment didn't come flying down. 

On top of that, Oben would not accept responsibility to replace the piece but made me buy a new plate from them. 

I wouldn't trust them to support the thousands of dollars that goes on top of monopods, best to stick with Manfrotto or other reputable companies.

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

I wanted something simple that I could easily take almost anywhere. This monopod fits the bill. Added an Oben Qra-R2 quick release assembly with extra mounting plates and I'm good to go. While not entirely effortless, this device does provide some additional stabilization so you can clean up those shaky videos. Add a cell phone attachment and shoot almost like a pro.

A fine monopod as far as monopods go... i like the releases as opposed to the twist releases, so that's a plus.

Comments about Oben ACM-2400 4-Section Aluminum Monopod:

I haven't really had a chance to use it much but looks to be fairly sturdy. It does make it easier to steady the camera than hand holding and sets up much faster than the tripod. May use it as a hiking stick also.
