    SO SO ITEM

    I gave this item two stars, yes it fits great in your hands and it is easy to find. We got this item because we wanted something shorter then the normal selfi stick for our wedding honeymoon pictures while in Key West. Bad thing about this item is that the rear attachment is threaded in to the back end and yes it was tight enough and I did not strip the end on it. Note----while item is made out of plastic you can only go so tight! The GoPole undid itself from the of the GoPole and in the ocean it went, by the time I felt it come off and the other half was still attached to my hand the whole unit with GoPro sunk real fast, once the threaded end is out the GoPole will fill up with water. So there goes our water sport honeymoon pics. To me it was not the items lost, but more so pictures we will never recover. So do yourself a favor, if you do buy it, you need to also find a way to attach the top half of GoPro to you as well, do not trust the bottom end.

    This bobber was amazing. We went snorkeling everyday on our trip to Hawaii. This bobber is small, lightweight, and convenient. We saw a lot of marine life and at times ended up in some shallow rocky areas, it was nice to be able to let go and feel confident that the wrist strap was in place and the camera wasn't going anywhere. We also dove with sharks and at times, we were knocked against the cage. There were guys with us who had the long poles and they were having a hard time trying to get themselves in a good position to keep themselves safe and prevent their cameras from being eaten. We were able to let go, get our bearings, and grab the bobber. We could also keep it close enough to where we didn't have to worry about it being in the way or getting lost.

    This product works as advertised, I actually use it on my Sony Action Cam, HDR-AZ1 mini, I had to purchase a camera mount for a few bucks, $3.99. The only issue that I have with this product is that the buckle that connects the strap to the bottom creates a lot of noise that is captured on the video. I need to figure out a way to stop this because it has ruined some very good video. Perhaps some tape or heat shrink tubing will do? I know that I am not the only one experiencing this problem, the people at GoPole should address this. I think if you made the connection point out of some plastic or resin material that wont break easily this will stop the clanking that I get on my videos. I would recommend this product but with some reservation.

    Simple but Amazing

    When purchasing this for a trip, I really didn't know what to expect. I tried the floaty back from GoPro and ran into a problem with it, so looked for a different alternative. Stumbled upon this amazing product, and after getting it home and looking into is functionality, I ran into one concern. That concern was dealing with the removal of the what looks like a plug. It was the screw in camera stand mount or wrist strap attachment location at the bottom of this product. Not needing the strap attachment for the pool, I decided to test the hole left open with the camera attached and I wanted to see if it was going to fill up with water. I did not see anything happen at all. Even held it under water to test to see if it would sink... still, no water entered. So this is an awesome product.

    I purchased the GoPole just before a recent diving trip to Thailand. I had a friend lose a GoPro while diving so I wanted something that would not only tether the camera to my dive gear but also float as a backup. The GoPole worked perfect. It has enough buoyancy to float GoPros to the surface while being completely manageable underwater for filming purposes. It comes with a tether and clip that attaches to the bottom of the handle for extra security while in the water. This product is not only great for diving, but any leisure activity in and around water. The yellow handle is also much easier to spot in the water as opposed to all the other black handle products. The handle is a good size for most adult hands and the rubber wrap provides more than adequate grip in the water.

    Awesome little Grip

    I purchased this from a dive shop in Hawaii before a dive. The Go Pro went on easy and the wrist strap was real easy to use. I felt like the wrist strap was gonna brake from the handle, I wish it felt more secure some how. It was great for my Scuba Diving and to my surprise it floated. The yellow handle is hollow yet made of hard plastic so you can't crush it. I was mad that both Best buys in Hawaii don't carry any Go Poles or Bobbers... Actually they don't carry anything for under water. Not good for an Island where everyone loves being in the Ocean, Go figure.

    Understanding my ratings: 1 Star = Strongly discourage getting the product. There are absolutely no positive or helpful aspects in the product. 2 Stars = Overall not recommended. Have some positive aspects but not good enough to be recommended. 3 Stars = Workable product. It's not terrible, but not fantastic either. 4 Stars = Fantastic! I love it, but there are a few things that could improve. 5 Stars = Strongly recommended product. Hardly any flaws to the product and it's functions. *If my opinion on this product changes while in use, I will update my review to reflect such changes. Thanks & Regards

    I got this to do diving and snorkeling with while on vacation. I've seen someone drop their GoPro in the ocean and I didn't want to be that guy. I tested it while swimming and noticed a strange clanking noise. It turned out to be the keyring style clip that holds on the lanyard. The clip is metal and the post it attaches to is metal. That left me with no way to wrap it around my wrist to ensure it didn't float away. Luckily, a guy I was diving with had some string and that was a quick temporary fix. It's held together after a couple dives up to 70 feet, snorkeling and a bunch of swimming. I'd buy another.
