The Gitzo Carbon Monopod Series 4 5 Section L extends to a great height of 74.8" while remaining rigid due to Gitzo's Carbon eXact fiber construction. This material is extremely lightweight and rigid, weighing just 1.6 lbs while supporting 66.14 lbs! It is also highly shock-absorbent, delivering smooth rotation and tilt while minimizing the effect of external disturbances. The ball-joint on the rubber foot further increases this smoothness to capture excellent shots of moving targets. The Carbon Monopod Series 4 5 Section L can be easily adjusted between shooting heights via Gitzo's G-Lock Ultra system that provides secure locking and keeps moisture and dirt out of the tubing. The reversible 1/4" and 3/8" mounting thread gives you the freedom to choose from a wide variety of lenses, heads, and cameras.
