My wife and I both use this Monopod. The Polecat is a great walking stick. It adjusts longer than most, which allows mounting a digital camera at eye height instead of stooping over. The three locking legs lock firmly when extended. The universal stud on the top allows the attachment of cameras, scopes and other devices. We used the PoleCat every day on a 10 day hiking vacation without any problems.
Pros: Sturdy, collars hold firmly, good value
