Comments about Giottos Giottos MM-9170 4-section Aluminum Pro Monopod, Suppports 33 lbs:

This monopod is nothing if not stout. For me it's as much a walking stick as a monopod. I'm 220lbs and so that it's sturdy is a good thing. But, I was surprised at the size, mostly the large diameter. It's a handfull at the foam grip. It's surprisingly light given it's size and strength. My biggest complaint is the foot. It flexes nicely to sit well on any surface, even at quite an angle, but has not much of a gripping sole on the bottom and so slides easily on anything but a very clean course surface. That's not so much a problem for the monopod function, but definitely not good for the hiking stick function. It needs a carbide tipped foot that can replace the rubber foot. Also, a hiking stick needs an adjustable strap and this unit does not have that.

Comments about Giottos Giottos MM-9170 4-section Aluminum Pro Monopod, Suppports 33 lbs:

Hard to tell by pictures and description what it's really like. This unit is well put together and looks like it cost lots more. A little heavy with a 2lb. head but I'm not a hiker. Sturdy like a tree trunk. May purchase snow shoe for use in beach sand. Came with small case, but won't hold pod with head attached. Very pleased with choice, expect to get giottos tripod in near future
