I need a new monopod, as my current cheapo doesn't seem to be able to support my 80-200 AF-S properly. While I wanted something really compact when collapsed, after much searching and reading, it appears that I would be better off to stick with a normal length monopod.
That brings me back to my original intention, getting a Feisol 1401 or 1471.
My heaviest lens currently is a 80-200 AF-S, and I doubt that I would ever be able to afford more than a 400mm. I will probably get a pro body later, and generally have a SB-800 on the camera.
My current thought is to get the 1471, since the price difference is small, and the compacted length is similar. Is there any reason that I should not get the 1471, and opt for the 1401 instead? I have not seen either of these monos in person, and only have the internet to compare them though.
