Best monopod that can be used as walking stick?
 
Does anyone have knowledge of monopods that are durable enough for use as a waking stick/trekking pole kinda stuff?
Thanks

I have a Manfrotto that is sturdy enough. Wish I had gone with the carbon fiber one, but this one isn't that much heavier. It's the model 682B and I installed a Bogen 3232 head (replaced the bogen mount with one that allows using my Arca style quick release (ReallyRightStuff). This particular model has detachable legs that can be used to give added support, comes with a padded handle and strap.

Gitzo SA appears to make a monopod specifically designed to double as a trekking pole / walking stick. See Monotrek.
