The Really Right Stuff Carbon Fiber Monopod 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 a multi-clamp set with either one ball clamp and one multi-clamp or two ball clamps and two multi-clamps for the perfect ultra-mobile, high capacity support solution. Add flat surface adapters to increase security on flat surfaces.
The Carbon Fiber Monopod
Carbon fiber monopod leg: 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 the monopod. Rubber Ball Foot: Large diameter teardrop shape makes positive contact with the ground at virtually any angle (also compatible with the 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.
