Carbon Tripod as Walking stick
Actually, many monopods are intended to double as walking sticks. Now tripods, I've never heard of them being suitable for such a purpose.
The Trek-Tek is about the only monopod I'm aware of that's explicitly recommended by the manufacturer as a walking stick. There may be others now.
