Monopod for video

I just replaced my old monopod with a carbon one. Amongst other things I use it for video shooting as it allows me to pan. Because of this use, I found ball heads to be impractical and went with this head:

I also have a shoulder brace that I bought for it many years ago; made of plastic but very strong. The brace folds flat against the monopod when not in use.
