    Kinda new to the idea of a monopod. Im not looking to spend more then 100 on one.
    Im not sure if i should get a monopod for like 60, plus a head or what?
    Anyone care to help?
    A store near here has a Manfrotto 680B for 59.99
    What is everyones opinion on that?

    I was tempted to go carbon fibre, but i got a deal on a Manfrotto 681 for $50 new. Couldn't pass it up. So far it seems to be good enough for what i wanted
    thanks for the help guys!
