(From company literature) Manfrotto 694 MagFiber Monopod.

The MagFiber series of Monopods comprise a revolutionary design by combining the strength of magnesium and carbon fiber. The monopod is crafted from carbon fiber using an exclusive, patented process. Under intense pressure, extra long carbon fibers are combined with resin to produce a stronger tube that absorbs more vibration - and with a wall thickness of only 1.2 mm!

Manfrotto engineers have also replaced all aluminum components with magnesium. The switch represents a lateral move in sturdiness, yet a substantial gain in strength and overall reduction of weight.

The 694 is very user-friendly, with quick-action adjustable lever locks that instantly secure leg extensions in place with no slippage or rotation. The 694 comes with a wrist strap and camera platform with dual 1/4" and 3/8" camera fixing screw.

Manfrotto 694 MagFiber review by winkyphoto
Review Date: 10/3/2008 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: None indicated| Rating: 9 

Pros: Light, straight and stiff. Oh, and long enough too (adjustable - actually)!
Cons: None.

It's a monopod. What's not to like? Easy to adjust, light and secure. Nothing to fault here. Doubles as a walking stick. Looks cool (IMHO).
