I just purchased a Gitzo G2257 6X Carbon Fiber Explorer Tripod and a Markin's M20 Ballhead.

This was not a cheap rig...

Has anyone used any tripod with just one leg extended as a monopod? I don't know if I can affort to buy a separate monopod and head at this time and not sure if I need to if I can get away with a single leg extension.
