I just got in the Wimberley Monogimbal head and it is awesome! I really think I will like this setup when hiking around places like Pungo Wildlife Refuge because it is super lightweight paired with the Sirui P306 monopod. It also seems to work great on a tripod. This head is super smooth! It may seem awkward but it really isn’t. With the camera mounted on the left side, you naturally push against the monopod when holding the camera and lens. What I like best is you don’t have to tighten any knobs or worry about the lens flopping if you let go of the camera. It’s definitely worth a look if you are wanting a lightweight hiking setup for your large telephoto lenses!
