The shipping estimate though is “within 1 to 2 months”. The price at B&H Photo is $24.88 but shipping is free only with orders of $49+, so either two of these, or append it to another order.

AmazonBasics Carbon Fiber Monopod for $53 w/free S&H

With their AmazonBasics line, Amazon can discount them and adjust their prices as they see fit, they don’t have to play the whole MAP song and dance. Perhaps this is one of the many reasons more online retailers are having more products under their own house brands.
