The Ultra Stick L60 Monopod from Velbon has a 6-section tubular leg with a simple twist lock. The leg can lock at any point between closed and extended positions. The innovative designs allows for more compact dimensions when closed, while enabling the monopod to extend to a greater working height than monopods with standard locking legs. This 6-section monopod collapses to 31.6 cm and extends to 155 cm. Ideal for a sports or nature photographer, who needs additional support but doesn't want to carry a heavy tripod.
