The 9002TM is one in a new line of Sunpak Tri- Monopods which allows the photographer to have greater usefulness without carrying extra equipment.
Tri-Monopods can be set up as full size tripods or can be used as a monopod if the situation arises.
The 9002TM is designed for today's latest DSLR cameras with large zoom lenses. Some of the features that it offers include a 3-way fluid-effect pan head with quick release plate, built-in bubble level, leg braces for added stability and rubber feet with retractable leg spikes. This tripod comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Bought it for the monopod functionality as a few places I frequent don't allow tripods. Works fine as both a tri & mono pod. I use it both for telephoto & close-up (w/ extension tubes) work with a 55-300mm Nikon lens & D5200 camera. No problems so far. Only con I have is it doesn't come with a 1/4-20 threaded piece on the bottom of the center tube for low angle shots.
Great product for those in search of a tripod/monopod combo. Sturdy construction and inexpensive. Purchasing number two today for my father.
the tripod itself and the monopod portion were great. its heavy durable and stable. only concern is the plastic 3 way pan head and the plastic quick release plate. i own a dslr with a battery grip and a zoom lens and just by looking at the QR plate, im having doubts if it could really stand up to the advertised 6.6 lbs capacity.
