Manfrotto Unveils New XPRO Monopod+ Range With Fluid Control

The new XPRO Monopod+ range of monopods from Manfrotto adds new fluid control and pan lock for greater control.

Manfrotto has announced a new family of monopods that combine new technologies in camera support. The XPRO Monopod+ will be available in both aluminum and carbon fibre, with carbon fibre models being considerably lighter.

The monopods also have a new fluid base system that smooths out the panning movement. From our test on the show floor this seems much smoother than the previous ball mounting on the monopod foot. This can also be locked for rigid support.

The ‘Quick Power Lock’ clips have also been re-vamped to provide a more secure hold on the sections, and also reduce slipping when using heavier camera and lens combinations.

The Manfrotto XPRO Monopod+ family is available in a number of configurations, either without a head where the camera can be screwed directly onto the monopod with a spring loaded 1/4″ screw, or alternatively with a 2-way head  or fluid video heads attached using the 3/8″ screw.

You can purchase the monopods from October with prices ranging from 188 for the 3 stage aluminium monopod (no head), up to 296 for the 4 stage carbon fibre monopod.

I had a fluid base manfrotto monopod a few years back and it was crap, it didn’t last long, too cheaply made for someone who work on an everyday basis.
But I think they imporved the quality of their product, I bought a manfrotto fluid head a year ago and it’s great, very happy of it. So for a 100$ I think it’s worth to try the new one. I’ll probably get one eventually.
