Hi Leo,

sorry, I don't have a good monopod for sale.  I was just wondering,  
what makes a good monopod.  I have a nice Gitzo carbon fibre tripod,  
and I can se how materials and design improve a tripod, but I wonder  
what makes a tripod better than others.  I've always thought that most  
monopod movement comes from the fact that the photographer must  
stabilize it with handholding, and perhaps a foot locked behind the  
monopod foot, so I always thought that most monopods were equally good.
