    This thing is sweet. I am extremely impressed with this piece of equipment. There is slightly more shaking than the GoPro brand mount when mounted to a moving vehicle but only slightly. The upside is that you don't need five different attachments to get the angle you want. The two ball joints give you almost unlimited angles with just the one mount. For 20 dollars you can't beat this thing. Pros: -suction cup is a beast. It's not going anywhere. -small footprint in your bag or carrying case -almost unlimited angles with the two ball joints -easy to use -will hold a full size DSLR (I wouldn't mount it outside of a moving vehicle even though it would probably be fine. I have only tested stationary position with DSLR) -quality product Cons: -I wish there was a was to extend the middle section or combine several of these to make a "tripod" on the side of a vehicle. (Not really a con, but nothing is perfect)

    GoPro Hero5 Black Belongs To Davey Jones' Locker

    I wanted to share my experience with the Jobe Action Series Suction Cup and GorillaPod Arm for the GoPro. I was really stoked about this item and was able to get a great deal on this item at Best Buy. Yesterday, 1/15/2017, I was finally able to really test out my brand new GoPro Hero5 Black as we were going out into the Gulf to do some fishing. I attached the Jobe suction cup to a CLEAN & smooth surface on the top of the boat (fiberglass – which falls under the “nonporous surfaces”). I pulled and pulled on it before moving anywhere, and it didn’t budge, so I figured we were good to go. So, we hit the channel in the Gulf, and hit 25-30MPH, no problem. We stopped at a little red snapper fishing hole we know of; while sitting there fishing, the d@mn think un-attached and started sinking in the ocean…I dove into the cold water as soon as I saw it sinking. But, the water was so murky and deep, I couldn’t reach/see it underwater in time. So, my brand new Gopro Hero5 (less than 1 month old) is now part of Davey Jones’ locker…what a day.

    Update: Not as good as I originally thought

    Now that I've had this for a while, I'm realizing it's not as great as I thought when I first got it. I liked it at first because it was much more easily positioned to where I wanted it compared to the GoPro suction cup mount, but it is not as solid. If I didn't have a Hero5 with image stabilization, I would probably hate this mount. It just vibrates too much when attached to my car windshield. I also recently bought a RAM mount which makes this mount look like cheap junk. The RAM mount is solid, really solid, no vibration whatsoever even on rough roads. I also mentioned in a previous review that this mount's rubber ball joints will crumble if you try to reposition it when it's tightened down a little. I don't see that happening with the RAM mount. It's rubber ball joints are 1" diameter and very solid.

    One of if not Best Suction Cup Mounts for GoPro.

    So I was really impressed with this mount as where you wouldn't expect it to be so secure because of its lightweight and ease of use. The screw tight system works wonders compared to the push down button system as it's extremely easy to tighten and loosen. I tried this on my car going about 100 - 110 and it stuck on to my car great. One down fall to this I would say is that the top ball joint even if tightened can be moved with enough weight on it. Also both ball joints are tightened by the same knob which kind of takes away from how easily you would be able to angle it and secure it if it was independently secured. All in all I love this car mount and only gave it 4 stars because of the fact that with enough weight depending on how you are angling it can move.

    Super strong suction

    I bought this mount to throw it on my Jeep while off-roading with my Hero 5. It works very, very well. I can mount it on the windshield, doors, hood, widows...allowing me to change up my camera angles. The best part, aside from solid adjustability, is the crazy-strong suction cup! There is a locking ring to secure the suction cup, which makes it feel like a permanent mount. It really IS that strong. I would highly recommend using this mount to others.

    i have left this little guy sticking on my windshield for over 2 months and it stays there with no problem even with the temperature changes! i attached my sony fdr x1000 everyday on it for 2 months and it holds it in place with no problem. the arm is pretty solid but if you move it with little force while its in the strongest locking position it will easily moved though, but it does the job so well when you attached your action cam on it. i dont know if i will trust my gopro on it if i stick in on the outside of my car then drive 60mph though..

    great adjustability but be careful

    I bought this for attaching a GoPro to a car. It has excellent 360 degrees adjustability and good suction. The bad news: because of its "twisting" motion to lock in the suction, rather than a lever, it is possible you can scratch the finish of your car if you allow the cup to spin while you try to tighten the rotating red ring. I learned this lesson the hard way -- I now have a ring-shaped scratch which I will need to buff out. I will not use it again on my nice car. And yes, the car was polished and wiped clean prior to attaching the Joby. A great device otherwise.

    Suction sucks

    I’m generally a fan of Joby products... but the suction on the two of these I own is bad. It initially has a nice solid suction that seems great. But within minutes it’s gone. I’ve damaged a Sony action cam when it was stuck to my car and I pulled out of a parking lot... numerous times it has dropped my cell phone. I don’t use them any more... I cannibalized them for parts to use with other similar devices (including other Joby stuff!)
