The GM4552L 5-section Series 4 carbon fibre monopod is an exceptionally tall monopod but still with a compact folded length. It uses the latest generation super-stiff Carbon eXact tubing. G-lock Ultra leg locks which have O ring seals and exceptional strength - in fact, the greater the vertical force applied, the stronger the lock becomes. The leg sections have anti-rotation grooving, which makes the monopod very quick to extend or retract. It has a foam padded grip and wrist strap.
