Hello everyone,

I have been reading about the 679B and the 681b monopods for my D300. Both get 5 star reviews on amazon, so I am coming here for feedback as to the differences, and what you all recommend?

I am 6'-3" tall (75 inches)

I know the 681 has a bigger diameter, weighs a shade more, but is also 2 inches taller.

I have not been able to see these in person, and want a solid mono, where when combined with a bogen manfrotto head, and camera allows me to stand straight without hunching over.

While I am at it, what head do you recommend for a monopod? All I know is that I want a quick release head......
