Our Verdict

3 Legged Thing Tripods and supports are designed in the UK, going from strength to strength thanks to their innovative products with a well deserved reputation of high quality camera supports. This monopod (which is also available as Alan 2.0 monopod with Docz2 Foot Stabiliser) features a number of upgrades over the original model to ensure users get the most stable results when shooting with long lenses. It is designed to withstand the rigours of fast paced photography and videography with equipment weighing up to a massive 60kg. which is more than enough for even 600mm prime lenses and pro weight DSLR cameras.

The shims have been upgraded to reduce the annoying twist which sometimes happens and a new plate and new leg locks helps for quicker set up with more stable results. Whilst we stock a wide range of monopods, this comes highly recommended for those shooting with large lenses who are looking for a truly professional carbon fibre system.
