(From company literature) SLIK Pro Pod 381 CF. The ultimate monopod for the backpacking photographer, or any photographer that simply has to travel as light as possible, SLIK's PRO 381 CF is a paradigm in travel monopods.
Made from an advanced multi-layered carbon fiber material, which is approximately 40% lighter, but just as rigid as the equivalent aluminum, the SLIK PRO 381 CF weighs less than 1 pound! (not including head) It also folds down to less than 20 inches in length. It's small size and feather weight makes it a natural on any photo backpack, you almost forget it's there!
It's not just professional nature photographers that will benefit from the amazing abilities of carbon fiber, any photographer that is traveling a lot, moving from one location to the next, like on a whirlwind tour of Europe or Asia, will greatly appreciate the abilities of the PRO 381 CF.
All SLIK carbon fiber tripods have a patented double nut ring twist lock on each leg section to tighten the leg securely to hold up to 10 pounds of camera gear.
