Like many, I was using Manfrotto Video Monopods such as the 561BHDV, but later started working with the Sirui P-204S for the option of the sturdy 'locking base'. But recently Manfrotto has started offering the new XPRO Fluid Panning Base that includes a Vertical Locking feature.

The XPRO Video Monopods come in a few different flavors depending if you want Aluminum, Carbon Fiber, 4-Section, or a 5-Section and kits are available with or without a Video Head. These systems are fairly new and many websites haven't fully listed all the available options. The kit i've chosen is the MVMXPRO500US which is already available for purchase (found here).

Above you see some fine examples from Vimeo member StillMotion about shooting with a particular monopod - the Manfrotto 561BHDV. I share this with you today, because if you've been eyeballing this monopod, it's currently available as a Gold Deal on Amazon (with only a slight $14 dollar discount). You won't see the price difference immediately until you click on the Gold Deal button on the right side of the Amazon product page.
