The MC-34 is our answer to your demands for a high-capacity, feature-rich monopod. The carbon fiber tubes are crafted from the same “Big & Thin" technology that has made our Versa tripods so successful. Each ‘Pod also benefits from the same advanced leg-lock technology and anti-twist tubing. Combine our monopod with either our MH‑01 or MH‑02 monopod head for the perfect ultra-mobile, high capacity support solution.

Down to the smallest screw.
MC-34 Versa Series 3 Monopod
Big & Thin carbon fiber legs: With a large outer diameter and wall thickness of only 0.04", our carbon fiber tubes far surpass the competition in strength-to-weight ratio
MC-Strap: Rotating wrist strap adds support and security when carrying
Rubber Ball Foot: Large diameter teardrop shape makes positive contact with the ground at virtually any angle (Accepts optional RRS Rock-Claw or Foot Spike)
CNC Machining: Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) milling machines precisely sculpt parts out of solid metal affording excellent control in the design, fit and finish of every metal part found on an RRS tripod. Other tripod manufacturers employ mold casting to mass produce metal parts, resulting in lower strength/quality pieces
Anodizing vs Powder Coating: Anodizing produces surface protection embedded into the metal, yielding superior wear and corrosion resistance versus a superficial coating
Twist Grip Leg Extension Locks: Textured semi-hard rubber allows for easy adjustments and strong grip. Anti-twist leg sections mean each twist lock can be operated independently
4-section design provides versatile combination of extended height and compact folded length

Shop for Monopod Heads
We offer support packages that pair the MC-34 Series 3 Carbon-fiber Monopod with our Monopod Heads, and can also offer custom combinations with other models. The MC-14 mounts to any device with an industry-standard 3/8"-16 threaded socket.
Rather than a Monopod Head, some photographers prefer to mount a Quick-Release Clamp to the Monopod which directly receives a camera or lens equipped with a compatible Quick-Release Plate. This option provides no articulation, but minimizes bulk and weight. Chose a Quick-Release Clamp that features a 3/8"-16 threaded socket, like the B2-LR-II or the B2-Pro
