3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Robert Petkus on December 26, 2010
I'm a long-time Manfrotto consumer and decided to take a chance on this new product from Benro. My criteria:
1) Lightweight
2) >5 feet extended and <= 20 inches folded
3) Flip-lock levers
4) Excellent quality

This product squeaks past my desired folded size at 20.9 inches but everything else is on the mark. The monopod feels and looks nicely machined and is well balanced. The "pod foot" is a nice bonus I initially wasn't seeking but it really helps to stabilize the shot. If the foot is rotated up, this product can be used with a monopod holster, though not as easily as without.

I've used both flip-lock and twist style extenders and prefer flip-locks. A matter of taste...

I'm using this monopod with a Manfrotto 496RC2 compact ball head and Pentax K5 DSLR both with and without the optional BG4 battery grip. I hook the tripod to the side of my Domke F-2 bag with some loops I installed.

All in all, I'm extremely satisfied with this product and would purchase again.

Note that this product is made in China - it's not mentioned anywhere as far as I can tell.

The photographer relies on a monopod for one thing, to keep the camera steady during image creation. This is the ultimate measure of this tool and every other part of the evaluation is subordinate to that factor. The monopod cannot be shaky, wobbly, loose, flexible or slippery in its role. In any measure of the steadiness of the A48F the results are consistent. This is one stout staff.
There is a heft to this monopod that lends an impression of confidence to the photographer. Even when the three sections are fully extended to 64 inches the monopod is rock solid. This particular model uses the clip lock system and an Allen wrench is included in the package to adjust the tension on the section clips. Right out of the box mine locks solid and under the heaviest outdoor use never once did I find the monopod slipping and becoming shorter.

The ball-joint foot is equally solid. Though it will likely loosen as the monopod gets used more and more, the tension of the ball joint inside the rubber foot is nearly perfect. The knurled base of the foot stays flat on the ground while you can lean the shaft to nearly any angle necessary to get your shot. This is a traditional monopod meant to offer that third point of support and not designed to stand on its own, which is exactly what I wanted.

At the other end of the monopod the head base features a reversible threaded fastener. You can connect the monopod directly to your camera base or, as is more likely, connect any standard tripod head. I use the monopod with a pistol grip had that simplifies the pointing of the camera while still maintaining a solid attachment to the monopod.

You can find a monopod at almost any price point, from the cheapest to some that cost more than tripods.

Very sturdy, and I love the ball foot. It's strong enough to support my whole DSLR rig. The locks are plastic, but thus far, have proved strong. I added a "Giottos MH621 Quick Release Adapter" to the top, so I could easily move the rig from the monopod to the tripod.

I love the flip locks and the pod is sturdy. I had twist locks on another monopod, but over time they got were they would not lock the sections. With the flip locks if that happens they can be adjusted to correct locks.
