Yes, I use the RRS lever clamp on my monopod. I prefer it so, along with my L plate, I can switch quickly between vertical and horizontal shots.Are any of you using a lever release clamp on top of your monopod?? RRS recommends a screw clamp rather than a lever release.
What do you think??
I think the concern from RRS's point of view is that the lever release could catch on something like a shirt and open at a really bad time!! I have a LR clamp coming in the mail.... not sure if I should keep it or return it for the screw clamp.Yes, I use the RRS lever clamp on my monopod.

I ordered the B2LLR II which is the longer (80mm) lever release clamp. I plan to use the 200-400 on it so the longer platform should be better. I will keep you posted.Don,
I ordered the small lever release clamp from RRS. It was the B2-40 and it should be arriving later this week. The standard lever release seems large on the monopod and I think the smaller one will be much better. I do not trust either clamp when carrying the rig on my shoulder so I hold onto the strap just in case... I will let you know how the small clamp works out.
BTW the small lever clamp is not on the website, just in the new catalog.
You can do the same thing with the lever release clamps.... there are three stops... fully closed... halfway closed... and fully open.A few weeks ago I got my monopod and the Manfrotto tilt. I planning to purchase a screw knob clamp on the tilt. I think a screw knob clamp is better because it is easier to open the clamp just a little bit to make small adjustments to balance the setup.
I may have one for you. If so... I will send it free!! I will look for it tomorrow. :biggrin:Does anyone know if RRS is the only place to get the 3/8-16 to 1/4-20 reducer bushing? I'd hate to place on order for only one $5 item and they're out of stock of the Bogen 3232 swivel heads.
