Bogen makes them too.

I have seen several. My general reluctance about them is that I am afraid of popping the bottom plate of the cam if I tripped.

Regardless, if you are in places were it is difficult to setup a tripod it will help keep the cam still.

pro stick

do you know if it will take the weight of your shoulders and arms, to make long hauls of shooting easier??

It will take the majority of the weight. Your merely have to hold the cam steady. I think if you use the word "monopod" or various symonyms in a search of this site you will find discussions about them.
