From the Manufacturer
|Monopods are ideal travel and outdoor companions, taking up little space yet giving invaluable support and better results than hand-held shooting. Favored also by sports photographers using long, heavy lenses but needing lightning fast reactions and repositioning. |

The 680B is more than strong enough to do everything I asked of it. In fact, I could have easily gone to the lighter 679, or lighter still. This monopod has a massive feel about it- it's not going to collapse, even if you put your full weight on it. It can easily support a tripod head and a 300mm/2.8 lens. There's an ingenious dual-sized screw on the top that instantly accommodates either a 3/8" threaded tripod head, or a 1/4" camera socket without the need for any tools or adjustment. Very clever. If there's a downside, it's that it's not exactly light- but it's still less than a third of the weight of the tripods I'd be carrying otherwise.
One hint, if you're not already a monopod user: While a monopod adds a tremendous amount of stability to a camera and lens, the assembly is still free to vibrate or rotate from side to side. Using the camera's strap to place tension on the camera, or placing a knee against the monopod does wonders to minimize this movement.
The build also looks polished (it doesn't look cheap to be sure). It's Manfrotto quality through and through, and made in Italy (per the label on the top section of the monopod just under the hand grip.
The sections retract and extend very smoothly. There is barely any friction between sections, so the monopod can be extended or retracted very quickly. The monopod will accept both 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threads. The 3/8" screw adapter is a retractable sleeve (spring-loaded) permanently affixed over the 1/4" screw mount -- an ingenious design!
If you have a heavier camera setup and need a monopod, you can't go wrong with this one.
Follow up to the above: I have used this pole on a trip to Alaska and as a walking pole on trips all over, including on airline trips where I use it to help get me to gates far apart as I have a bad knee. It really does function extremely well as a walking staff being very sturdy and collapsible to a very short length that fits on board as part of my carryon baggage. TSA people have really liked it and have received many inquiries from strangers who see me using it.
