Yes. Of course a monopod rotates easily. What I want is to be sure my lens doesn't unscrew from the monopod. I'm planning to get an Arca compatible quick release plate (such as a Kirk LP-1) for my 300mm f2.8L lens and an Arca mount which has provisions for anti- rotation screws, but I'm not seeing any monopods from Manfrotto or others that have anything other than the center screw. This as opposed to tripods which have provisions for additional screws to prevent rotation of heads. I see lots of photographers who have the lens on a stick they carry over their shoulders. Surely there is some provision to avoid the lens loosening on the screw, but I don't see it.
