I've just bough this vintage monopod from ebay and I like it but I haven't quite fathomed what that extention bit is for, can it just be used as a handle?

I think you place it against your chest to help hold it steady.
Quote: your chest
Yup! And or into your shoulder like a rifle butt.....
Manfrotto make something similar only its all plastic......
Looks like it goes on the shoulder like a gun stock would
Edit must type faster
wow you lot are really quick with responses. Thanks a lot for your replies .............I thought it was a bit small for my bum
Nice monopod there. I think I'd use mine more often if it had an extension like that.
Just for you CB
I rely on my 5-axis IS these days. Lol!
Does anybody know what make this could be? It's seems to be well built but obviously from a time before manufacturers felt the need to emblazon their products with company logos etc
I have no idea, but I don`t think its really that old, looks sixties to me.
Could be German, East German or from any of many of small UK companies.
hahaha I'm from the sixties and I'm old
