I have two prototypes of my steadicam telescoping monopod for sale. This design allows you to have your spotter or dolly grip follow/spot you with the monopod retracted into itself and slung on their back until you need to hang it up. The monopod is unslung and released to securely hang up you sled anywhere you find yourself. I have sold 6 to date. I have used my prototype for 2 years in test and evaluation with zero failures. 

This is a product I have been working on for over 6 years and many prototypes until this final and more then satisfactory prototype design. This is an extremely well machined and manufactured product with a proven track record.

I have pictures and demo videos if you would like me to email them to you. There are two choices of fork sizes 1.5 inch and two inch forks. Please email me directly at: stefvonbjorn@gmail.com for all questions or orders. Price with fork is $900.00 plus shipping. If you would like an adjustable sling included please add $30.00.

Thank you for your interest.

Stefan von Bjorn,soc.

Great work on the new poles Stefan! I have one of these and it's very handy to have in the kit. Nicely made, sturdy, reliable product.

I have bought one of Stefans mono pods as well.


Very well made! This one will easily last for you whole career.

Very handy! With the adjustable shoulder strap your spotter has both hands to guide you safely and the pod ready in seconds.


Worth every penny!
