Longest lens supportable with a video monopod?

Hey all!

What do you think is the longest lens you can use with a video monopod? I am thinking of getting a mogopod, custom setup, Benro or Manfrotto. I have a standard footless monopod and I get some pretty unstable shots with a 135mm m42 lens. I am doing event videos with this setup, mostly wedding stuff, so being able to get some length would be really nice. I am using an APS-C crop camera (t3i) for this.

First time post, sorry if I screw something up.

Here's the sort of thing I would like to do:

Hi Josh -

This has nothing to do with the lens/monopod issue. I notice that the music you used on the wedding video is a Blake Shelton song. I really hope that you licensed that music - otherwise it's a lawsuit waiting to happen. You cannot just put commercial music on a project which you're getting paid for without licensing it. If I'm wrong, and you have licensed rights to it - I apologize for bringing it up. If not, you really need to reconsider both from the standpoint of great monetary loss on your part if they see your video and sue, and also from the standpoint of the artist, losing money because someone thinks it's ok to just grab and use it. Very nice video, however.
