Re: Tripod or monopod recommendation for 1Dx + 200-400?

I don't have the 200-400 but I use Canon's 800mm on a Gitzo GM3551 monopod and Mongoose M-3.6 gimbal head. For my purposes at least I couldn't be happier with the setup and if I had the 200-400 I'm certain I'd use it the same way. The monopod works well for shooting from open vehicles, boats, moving around in the field, and the Mongoose head is very small, light yet strong and stable.
