Manfrotto 790B Modo Mono review by MikeP_UK
Review Date: 9/8/2009 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $30.00| Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Inexpensive, light, packs very small, well made.
Cons: Needs addition of ball head (in my opinion),

I needed assistance with steadying shots with my long lens. I reckon this gives me the equivelent of an additional 2 stops on shutter speed.
This monopod is rated to 1 kg (2.2 pound) but I happily use it with Nikon D90 + Nikkor 70-300 VR - about 1.6 kg.
