Aluminum monopod weighing you down? Ditch that heavy piece of metal for Delkin’s Fat Gecko Monopod. At only ¾ lb, the monopod’s ultra-light weight makes it easy and convenient to carry around. Made of 8 layers of carbon fiber using a Z-weave pattern, the Fat Gecko Monopod has proven to be highly durable and can hold up to 30 lbs.
As it is not made of metal, the monopod will also neither corrode nor tarnish. With its unique 5-section design, the monopod sets up and breaks down in a matter of seconds. Simply unstrap the monopod and it will practically assemble itself. It can fold down to 16 inches and reach up to 57 inches when assembled. The built-in metal spike, with removable rubber stopper, at the bottom of the leg provides extra stability on rocky or uneven ground. A standard 3/8” post with a Fat Gecko 1/4"-20 locking ball head is included with the monopod, which can be used to mount any DSLR, camcorder, or compact camera.
Whether you are travelling, photographing nature, or just need to stabilize your camera, the Fat Gecko Monopod provides the high-quality and durability of a high end carbon fiber monopod at a fraction of the weight and cost. If you want the lightest, strongest, and most durable compact monopod made in the USA, Delkin’s Fat Gecko Monopod is for you!

Poway, CA. November 5, 2012 – Delkin Devices is proud to announce the newest additions to their extensive Fat Gecko product line, the Fat Gecko Monopod and Tripod. Both made of carbon fiber material, the Fat Gecko Monopod & Tripod are the lightest, most durable, and inexpensive Carbon Fiber products currently on the market. All components of the Fat Gecko Tripod and Monopod, including the carbon fiber and steel parts, are made in America.
The Fat Gecko Monopod is made of 8 layers of carbon fiber using a Z-weave pattern. It is highly durable and sturdy, making it able to hold up to 30lbs without bending. In addition, its folded height of 16 inches and weight of only ¾ lb. makes the monopod easy and convenient to carry around. The monopod can reach a height of 57 inches when assembled. Carbon Fiber will also neither corrode nor rust, and is not affected by heat, cold or sun. Its unique 5-section design also allows the monopod to set up and break down in a matter of seconds. Simply unstrap the monopod and it will practically assemble itself. For extra stability, a metal spike, with removable rubber stopper, is built into the bottom of the leg for use on either rocky or uneven ground. The Fat Gecko Monopod and Tripod both come with a standard ¼”-20 locking ball head, which is compatible with all DSLR, Video and Action cameras. The head is removable, meaning that any brand of head on the market can be mounted on a 3/8” post.
