Due to the fact I am taking up a different type of photography which wont require a monopod, and have only used me monopod 3 times since I purchased it, I have decided to get rid.

It is a Hama Star 78, prices vary from around 15.00 to 30.00 for this dependent upon where you shop.

Im looking to sell for 10.00.

Here are the specs:

- 4-section, telescopic monopod for photo and video
- 3D pan head
- Camera spirit level
- Quick-release coupling to change the camera without any problems
- A 1/4 threaded mount
- Ball-bearing base
- Height min.: 61 cm
- Height max.: 176 cm
- Weight: 665 g
- Includes bag

(Source: http://www.picstop.co.uk/Tripods/Hama-Star-78-MonoPod---176cm)

The monopod is in almost new condition as its only be used a few times, its about 4 months old. It includes the bag for carrying it as well.

Here are some photo's:

Aye, you got it one fella!

Tripod = 3 legs - tri = three
Monopod = 1 leg - mono = single

Monopods are more portable and better for when you have less space and a less stable ground. They also take less time to setup and look less gimpy lol.

However, they are not as stable as tripods for obvious reasons, you usually lean them against something, but even without doing this they can make the world of difference, especially at the telephoto end. A lot of pro's have converted to them nowadays.

Tis a good and well built piece of kit - I just have no use for it anymore. And its taking up space in my boot.

Might consider a swap/add money to the equasion for any ND filters (ratings of between 3 and 60 is useful) and possibly PL filters (if you dont know what they are, you wont have any so dont worry lol).
