The main factors people usually consider when buying a monopod are weight and build quality. When on the move with a monopod you need it to be able to stand up to a few knocks without latches being broken or bits falling off. From this point of view the Trailblazer does well, with construction being of a high quality. Weight is not the best of class but if you want anything lighter you'll need to pay the premium of an aluminium or alloy monopod. It's certainly easy enough to carry around, and there is even a nylon carry bag with strap provided.

If you chose not to carry the monopod in the supplied bag there is a carrying strap on the monopod itself. The handle is foam and is comfortable to hold.

At the base of the monopod the screw fitting lets you choose between a rubber foot for indoors or a metal spike for outdoors. The one problem with this we can warn you of, which is inherent of all tripods using this system is they tend to pick up mud and then deposit it on your carpet when you get home.

The snap locks operate as you'd expect and the full extension is approx. 172cm, with the fully collapsed length being approx. 53cm.

Verdict
If you're looking for a no frills functional and well built monopod which is good value at 21.75 we have no hesitation in recommending this one.
