What head for a monopod?


Hello there!
I would like to order the Gitzo GM2561T Traveler Carbon Fiber Monopod I think I need a head and a quick release for ease of use with my spotting scope.  Will the Manfrotto 200PL-38 3/8-Inch Quick Release Adapter Plate work?


Thanks,

Diane

Dear Diane,
Thanks for your inquiry.

We had a discussion about this among the staff. Our recommendation is to get the Manfrotto Monopod 234RC Tilt Top-Swivel Tripod Head.

With the 200PL plate only, you wouldn’t have a tilt feature, and you’d have to lean the monopod to look up or down. That wouldn’t be ideal.

If you still have questions, please call the store to get a better understanding, 800-289-1132.

All the best,

Eagle Optics

  1. I have a bird binocular, and believe you me it is the best device for watching birds in the wild. You can best mount a bird binocular on the Gitzo. See some amazing models here: http://wildernessmastery.com/outdoors/best-birding-binoculars.html
