I have an old "Shooting/Optic MonoPod" now carried by Cabela's, that I have had for years. I believe I have at least 3 of them. They have a plastic Y on the top that is removable to attach your camera. Extends out in 4 sections to 67". They were pretty Hi-Tec back when I bought them. I would consider them entry level today. They still work, and have not broke, so I have never replaced them with the new Hi-Tec ones now available.
For WalkAbout I have a Staff with a forked antler on the top for a gun rest.
See You At The Range
