The monopod is aluminum, not the lightest - but as a 'budget' item - good enough for the price as compared to carbon fiber pods costing much more.
Amazon prime got this to my Korean APO as fast and as inexpensively as expected.
Moving the monopod instead of the head to compose pictures quickly becomes natural. Panning to catch the action is never a problem -- just rotate the whole monopod. I did find that there was some tendency for the head to slightly unscrew from the tripod at these times, but only a partial turn, and never so much as to affect stability.
I find it quick and easy to swing the head 90 degrees to either side for portrait-oriented pictures. The head stops at 90 degrees, so I don't have to fiddle around locking it or trying to hold it in position if I need to take a quick shot.
This would not be a good head for movies or if you aren't typically shooting with the the lens fairly level (like capturing birds in trees). Thus I wouldn't use it, for example, for basketball or volleyball shots. But for most field sports, cross country, baseball, tennis, etc. --- it provides better support and ease of use than a ball head. This is a serious piece of hardware, and requires a serious monopod -- a lightweight ball-head would be a better match for a lightweight monopod.
This has made my cheapo monopod a lot more useful.
