    I have a lot of GoPro Accessories and I must admit this might be one of my favorites, I have several poles but use this one more than any of them, i have the GoPole Reach which is great for when you need the longer sticks, but this hand grip is great for just everyday use, do yourself a favor and stop reading all the reviews and just buy it, you won't be disappointed, I'll say before I make a purchase I'm the type who reads reviews, watch online videos, I wish I had just saved my time on this one and just skipped all that and just purchased it, I have no regrets, would recommend this to any GoPro user out there!

    So far, we have really enjoyed this mount. There are so many mounts that it's hard to choose. We were primarily planning to use the GoPro for snorkeling, so this mount seemed to be ideal. Good price, and it floats even when the GoPro is attached. Additionlly, it has a small lanyard to wrap around your wrist for security, and the bottom of the handle is bright orange, which is great for visibility if you DO actually lose it in the water. The orange part floats to the top. The foam grip is really great and ergonomic. The only thing that could be added would be a button to press on the handle in order to actually take photos. It'd be more convenient for selfies, as well as ease of photo taking while underwater.

    Gets the job done

    When I was first out buying accessories for my GoPro, I wanted a stick long enough to be able to take selfies or get full shots. The Best Buy rep told me that this would extend out a little bit and handle floats which I thought was a great combination. When I got home and open the box I found out it was literally just a floating handle that didn't extend out at all. Now I know I'm the uninformed consumer but I would rather the Best Buy associate tell me she didn't know then try to lie and waste my time. I did the term in that I would need something like this so I decided to keep it and it gets the job done

    Purchased the handle to test out in the pool and ease to carry around while on vacation. It's just the right size for selfies, group photos, and taking shots of whatever you may need. Love the fact that it has a wrist strap to secure it if your doing an activity or in my case on rides at a theme park. The Handler is made of a sturdy plastic and seems of great quality. The soft foam handle is a nice touch and does float ok while in water. Didn't float as perpendicular as I had wanted, but it does float nicely. I would definitely recommend it if your in the market for one.

    Great Accessory for the GoPro

    I bought this to use underwater during a snorkeling trip. I needed something that provided a handle for the camera, make it float if needed, and had a secure wrist strap. The handler filled the bill. Minor problems: The handle had a funky smell or of the box. It still smells a little. The foam handle absorbs water and takes a long time to dry. If you are flying home the day after use, wrap it in a cloth and seal it in a plastic bag. The handle should be made of sealed foam and needs to be orange for high vis. An added plus for the GoPro is that it makes a great underwater camera and also has great sound.

    Keeps your camera from drowning

    This will keep your camera from drowning if you happen to not connect the wrist strap, as my wife did. It will bob around with an orange plug at the bottom to allow you to find it if you happened to drop it off of a boat. This will not however, keep your camera upright while floating. The way the camera mounts, the weight immediately inverts the video if you're filming. While floating in the waters of Mahogany Bay, Roatan, I didn't lose my GoPro and my wife didn't lose her cool when it slipped out of her hand.

    I used this snorkeling and for some videos on dry ground in Maui, it works great! I have an old Naked Hero GoPro and it mounted as if my old timer was one of the brand new ones. Had no issues with salt water at all and we were in the water for hours each day. Very comfortable handle, the tether, though it twisted all the time and I thought it would be the first thing to break, is very robust and wasn't affected at all by the abuse. It didn't let me down!!! Excellent quality and durability!! Very affordable too.

    This was a very handy addition to the Go Pro for the water activities we had during our vacation. The camera got dropped in the water numerous times and the handle had no problem at all floating it and making it much easier to recover. We were in mostly still water but it was fairly deep so the camera sinking to the bottom would have been a major issue. Although if the water would have been fast flowing the camera and handle would have ended up further away. Yes there is a wrist strap that works very well but only when you attach it to your wrist properly.
