The Benro MK10 / BK10 (reviewed here) is my favorite selfie stick for 360 cameras. Not only is it pocketable but it can also become INVISIBLE if you remove the ballhead. But removing the ballhead is hard … unless you know how! This video shows you how to do it. Thanks to Angel Ponce for sharing this tip! Here is a video tutorial.
The Benro MK10 aka BK10 is the tripod / monopod that I use most often, primarily because it is pocketable, has a built-in stand, and is invisible to all 360 cameras (if you can remove the ballhead), including thin 360 cameras such as the Insta360 One X and Ricoh Theta V. It can also be used for smartphone 360 cameras such as the Insta360 Air or the Insta360 ONE when live streaming, and if you use the included super slim smartphone adapter, the phone will also appear invisible. It also kind of works with the Nano (there will be a slim line).
The Benro MK10’s primary disadvantage is that removing the ballhead is very difficult and in almost half of all cases, users have failed to remove the ballhead. Having said that, here is the easiest method for removing the ballhead (but please note it is not foolproof):

Benro BK10 is available here. You can try the Benro MK10 here (but note that I got one that I couldn’t remove the ballhead) in black/blue, or black/orange, or white/green. Thanks for using these affiliate links to support 360 Rumors at no additional cost to you so I can do more tests and reviews!
