A professional size 4-section carbon fiber model, the Benro MC-91EX Monopod can officially support gear of up to 39.6 lbs (18kg) and is recommended for even the largest SLR cameras with very big telephoto lenses, such as a 300mm f/2.8 lens. It has a foam-padded grip with a built-in wrist strap. Like any carbon fiber monopod, its capacity to absorb vibration is superior to an otherwise-identical aluminum version.
The MC-91EX's flip-lever leg locks are of the newest technology, and provide reliable and fast use with just a small motion necessary. Benro also has developed a "QIHM-8X" carbon fiber tube that's very thin and exclusively made from carbon fiber material. Along with extensive use of magnesium in the castings, it allows the MC-91EX to weigh just over one pound. The camera screw is reversible for both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 applications
