For the monopodable-tripod, it's a neat idea, but it seems that they are pretty big when in monopod mode, and can't extend that much.
...big in monopod mode.... what do you mean? One of the tripod legs can be srewed off. So you only deal with the leg = monopod
....and can't extend that much..... true. I use my monopod when sitting next to a soccerfield. So the height is okay for that use.
I have to agree, willrobb is right. I searched for something that fits my needs and may not fit your needs
It's the first time I hear about Redged, how do they compare? Yours is kind of pricy, too, I'm looking about the other models.
The Redged has been compared with other tripods by some photomagazines And, it actually got very good reviews. That is also why I bought it.
The price, yes, it may be a bit expensive. I paid 299 euros which I thought was not expensive since I got two-in-one. And it is carbon and good quality.
But, as I did, you have to put your list of criteria and make your decision based on those criteria.
