Comments about Cullmann Cullmann Magnesit 580C Carbon Fiber Monopod:
Wanted a light weight sturdy monopod, and the cullmann fits the bill perfectly. I tried to flex the monopod with my hefty 204lb. And there was no flex when it is fully extended. And it holds a 60D with the ef 100-400L securely.
If you want a pro level monopod, and do not want to pay super high price for a CF monopod. The cullmann is the pro level monopod at a reasonal price. And it preforms as well as the manfrotto and other higher price pro monopods.
