shtfmeister, great recommendation. That's pretty much what I ordered. Thanks.
TexPhoto, sorry, I guess I didn't explain myself very well. I have a Manfrotto monopod and most times that's perfect. But, I wanted something I could slip in the camera bag for when I don't have the monopod with me or don't feel like carrying it and need something to add just a little extra support for hand holding.
I want to experiment to see if it is easier and steadier than just cradling the lens in my left hand. I may find that it isn't, but figured for 10 bucks or so it was worth a try. (Which is why I'm not all that interested in the more expensive solutions).
