    I've just bought a used Sirui P-426SR carbon monopod. Sirui seem to get great reviews. Hadn't been aware of them til recently. Just wondered if anyone had any hands on experience.

    This model seems to go for around 350 our British pounds if bought here. It can be bought cheaper from China but I didn't want to go that route and it may incur import charges too. Apparently the one I've ordered has been used once so pristine as new condition. I got it for just over a third of the UK rrp.

    Well, it's arrived. First impressions are that it's very well constructed. I'll hopefully get it put through it's paces with the 500 f/4L in the next couple days or so.

    I found a used P/224SR at my local used shop about 6 months ago. I've used it with my D750/200-500mm f/5.6, and I'm very pleased with its stability. The added 3-feet feature is really handy, also. The only thing I changed was to remove the ball head, and replace it with a Manfrotto pistol-grip.

    Thanks. Mine didn't come with a head but I have 2 gimbals and I think 3 other heads of various sizes and styles so I've a choice. Depends on what lens I'm using for what purpose I suppose.

    Cheers for the input, appreciated.

    I have the ET-2204 tripod I got several years ago, I haven't used it much but have been very happy with it when I have. I got it based on the recommendation of my local camera shop.

    I've been using one of their monopods for years. The one I got was $99 and is still a solid workhorse for me using a 1Dx and a 300mm f/2.8 version I.

    Ah, my bad. I thought you meant the lens was produced by the same company as Sirui but under a different name.
