The Zhiyun Telescopic Monopod is made for gimbals like Zhiyun Crane 2, Zhiyun Crane Plus, Zhiyun Crane V2, Zhiyun Crane-M, MOZA Air, MOZA AirCross, and other handheld gimbals that weighs less than 15Lbs.
This is an oversized monopod made to handle the extra weight of a gimbal and camera rig. It also has a much thicker bolt and mounting plate on top to better withstand the added torque place at the contact point. Smaller, weaker, monopods will not be able to handle the weight when you hold a camera gimbal out in a horizontal position. This added protection is well worth a few dollars more over a standard monopod. I for one would not want my camera rig snapping off and hitting the ground when filming with a cheap monopod.
