Actually I use a Stoney Point, Polecat Monopod...Binocular Rest attachment... [url]...not sure if these are still being made.
These days around those parts poetic license seems to be in fashion
. (We read world news.)
Recently I chose the Slik 'Lighty' monopod after scrutinizing many options at major online retailers, but had I known about Stoney Point et al. may possibly have searched wider. As I see after a web search (and waiting for Black crow's follow-up, not in here yet) it does seem your model is now unavailable.
Personally I prefer IS only at higher x.
