Thread: Monopod design, an idea.

  1. #1

    Default Monopod design, an idea.

    With normal monopod, it's likely to swing left & right even it's stable on vertical
    position. What if I put a harpoon (inverted Y shape) on the bettom, then it will
    not swing side ways. Is it a working idea?

    Defeats the purpose of a monopod as 1 wants to pan left to right.. and vice versa.... not everyone wants to attach a pan-able head onto a monopod.

    For some, they want the monopod to be able to move in all directions whenever the need calls for it.
