Max Height 61.2"

I don't know how long you are, but 61.2" is just too short for me. I can use a short tripod, but using a too short monopod is a real pain.

Those extra sections that has to be unlocked and locked, make it slower to work with. How much of an issue it is, is depending of how you are working. If you unfold the monopod and use it for a longer periode before you fold it and go home, those extra seconds of unlocking and locking of sections is of no issue. But if you unfold it, take few picture and fold it again, and do this many times, you will like the few sections. But in the latter case, you probably also will like the shorter folded length. I prefer the fewer sections.
