Comments about Manfrotto 680B Compact Monopod Black:
I used to have a Velbon UP-4000 mono-pod but it was to light-weight to us with my Nikon D600 fitted with my Nikon MB-D14 Battery-grip and attached to my AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8G ED VR11 lens and AFS TC-20E 111 tele-converter.The Manfrotto 680B mono-pod and Manfrotto 234 mono-pod tilt head does the job much better and is more stable for all the extra weight of my photographic equipment.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well, I'm not sure where the 'compact' bit of the name comes from as this monopod is quite a size, even when folded. So, if you have visions of throwing this into a manbag or similar then you might want something else.However, on balance it feels light considering how sturdy it is. It has a fairly large diameter which means you can get a good hold on it. The clasps are also chunky enough that I have been able to operate them with gloves on.I think due to the size this is one of those monopods that you take out expecting to use (such as for an event) rather than having just in case. However, when you do need it then it works flawlessly and can support some large lenses (I was using a Nikon 200-400 with no problems)
sturdy and does the job
About Me Professional
Great monopod to leave in your tripod bag, it gets me out of trouble in situations where lighting is low but not low enough to warrant a tripod.
Used mostly for sport & nature when you need a prop but not a tripod.Slightly awkward opening hence only 4 stars.

it might be a little heavy but its extremly wel made
I have to take a lot of photos in low light situations without flash. This monopod replaced a less substantial one and the difference in stability was immediately apparent. I was able to take photos on a 200mm lens at low speeds with no discernible camera shake.It is reasonably heavy but highly recommended.

Nice quick service from Wex, Product feels very solid and reasssuring ...using it with a Sigma 120-400 zoom dont forget to turn off the OS.
