    This is the shooting stick I used for the yoke. It is a fine monopod by itself, but I wanted one that could be carried in a normal camera bag.

    Hi newarts (Dave?),

    Following a search for best smallest monopod, I came upon your posting of the 9 section monopod you built. I loved it! Very clever fabrication (I'm not fond of the current term "hack") Keeping the fasteners centered while the epoxy sets seems to be the difficult aspect and maybe a jig wouldn't be too tough for a one-off set up.

    My question is where did you find the yoke? It looks familiar but, for the life of me, I can't place it. I'd like to fab a 'pod using tension rods (folding tent pole) and I don't see the need for a ball head. If you'd set me on the right path, I'd be so appreciative. There are not many "Y" shaped fittings out there.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Gary Nach
