Yup!

BTW, there is new 561bhdv-1 monopods. The lower base is now red.

Re: Manfrotto 561bhdv Question

Count me amongst those who have lubed the ball at the base. Just purchased it recently and was really annoyed with the friction that was causing the ball to pop and rub while maneuvering the monopod. A small dose of WD-40 seems to have cleared up the problem so far. Wonderful tool now!

Re: Manfrotto 561bhdv Question

any owners have any trouble with the little feet at the bottom?

mine have no resistance any more, so they are pretty much worthless, I screwed the ball at the bottom but that wasn't the cause, it's almost like the little hook thing is worn out but i find it strange as it's only carried the weight of DSLR cameras.
