Digital Camera World Verdict

What you think of the 3 Legged Thing Trent 2.0 will depend on how you feel about monopods with no heads. Opinions are divided even in the DCW offices. Even without the optional Docz2 feet, the Trent 2.0 is a solid, super-tall, confidence inspiring monopod. With them, it becomes a lot more versatile.


  • +

    Extra tall maximum height

  • +

    Super stiff even at full extension

  • +

    Docz2 feet give a more stable platform


  • -

    No head included, which can be limiting

  • -

    Ghastly ‘Punk’ sticker on the side!

The 3 Legged Thing Trent 2.0 is a no-fuss monopod from 3 Legged Thing’s ‘Punks’ range. That means it’s a bit more down to earth and affordable than the company’s premium products, but effective nonetheless.
