Sturdy and steady

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this as an open box. I'm new to monopods BUT it's sturdy, easily adjustable. The only I wish it had was a swivel head to switch to portrait shots but works great as a monopod.

Pros: Sturdy, Cheap

Cons: Can only attach camera and shoot landscape shots
