GM5561T if you want the most compact and light weight monopod that has the highest load capacity.
Cool! I have the 1.4X III and have to say my 400 seems as sharp with it as it does without.
Are you going to use a monopod or tripod? For sideline sports like football you generally can't use a tripod. Players could be injured by it. A monopod is far less dangerous.
I would only use a monopod for sports. A tripod is fine for portraits or landscapes, where your subjects do not move, but for sports - when space is also often limited due to the number of other media - then a monopod is the only option.
Monopod is your only option really - a nice carbon fibre one will be light and strong.
