My search is over. This is the simplest option by far.

Just get a selfie stick on ebay amazon.

Weight and length perfect.
Telescopic for storage and transport.

Doubles as… a selfie stick.

Can also be used as monopod or as a handle.

Slices and dices, makes Julienne fries...
I love repurposing products from other industries. Find solutions with existing products before having to make something from scratch.

Haha what a funny expression!

This stick is going to come with me from mountains to broadway.

I am moving to research active electronic stabilisation for spotting scope. Wont happen from ZLS is my guess.

The expression is from a famous TV commercial by Ronco. You got the Julienne fry (chips) slicer if you bought the other product....usually before midnight that night of course.
I would love to see a.stabilized bino enclosure that would make any roof bino a stabilized one.

Not ZLS, but Nikon made one.
(Good luck finding in stock anywhere.)

So you re-invented the Finnstick that's been around for years and years: Finnstick - Wikipedia

You'll find more on the Finnstick when you search Kimmo's postings on this forum.

Lol yes sort off. They are all sticks after all.

You could say a finnstick is just a monopod.

A monopod is just a flagpole.

A flagpole is just a stick.

I’ll name my stick: the kimmik gimmick
