    Over priced

    3 stars because it's over priced in my opinion. It does it's job and is pretty versatile BUT for the money I'd expect better materials. The built in tripod is really flimsy and doesn't see like it would hold up in any type of wind. The over all construction of the stick is nice and comfortable but again; for the price I'd expect better materials. I'm comparing this to my Manfrotto Element Monopod that bestbuy sells for $49.99. I know it's a bad comparison when looking at DSLR gear vs Action camera gear BUT the Manfrotto is Aluminum with anodized bits, buttery smooth, extends to 59" and constructed like a tank while this Gopro 3-way cost more, made of plastic and feels like it could easily break. I'd totally recommend getting this if it was in the $30 range but not for $55.99

    Poor Design Quality

    I purchased this device knowing full well that many others had complained about losing the screw that attaches the handle to the 3-way mount. I thought the people writing the reviews were careless and I wouldn't be. I was fanatical about keeping the screw tight to be sure I didn't lose my expensive new GoPro camera. Sitting on a catamaran in Grand Cayman I looked down and the screw had fallen out and the rest of the stick, along with my GoPro camera, was on sitting on the bottom of the ocean. Fortunately we were anchored and the water was only 10-12 feet deep and I was able to retrieve the camera, but not the screw. It disappeared into the coral reef. I did not expect to have this problem because of how careful I was with keep things tight. You'll lose it in an instant when you're not paying attention and, if you're lucky like I was, you'll not lose your expensive camera. I cannot recommend this device to anyone.

    So glad I bought this mount. Really make sit easy to get a stable shot. I use it for 3 main purposes 1. Sticking it in the middle of whatever my kids are doing. Riding their bikes, running around the yard or through the sprinklers. Just stick it on the tripod and you capture what's around. 2. Holding it while riding with my kids. I'll grab the mount and hold it while following my kids on the skateboard. I like this mount because I can position it further or closer to get the shot. 3. Capturing my golf swing. I put the mount on the lowest position and place it behind me while golfing. Effectively captures each shot so I can go home and review my highlights. One thing I don't like is that it does take some time to get in the exact position. I happen to only use a few so it works great but if I was constantly changing positions it would get cumbersome.

    This is a great accessory, if you like your GoPro camera. First of all, light weight. It has a solid construction, but still keeping it really light weight. You can use it as a "selfie stick" and shoot a video and APPEAR in it. Or you can use it to gather your group of friends to record your fun. Fold it completely and you have a handle, to carry your camera and record better images than holding it in your fingers. Unfold it completely or partially and you can reach distant and/or hard to reach places. Crowded? Can't see because you have too many people in your front or you are not that tall? No problem! Just unfold it completely and shoot a video from above everybody's heads! And you still have na "extra" function: it has a micro tripod inside the handle. So, you can place it over a table, fireplace or anything and you can leave the camera filming alone!

    Got this item free with the purchase of the Hero5. Used it for a week while in Mexico with no problems. It does mention in the description that the item is not waterproof however I did use it in salt water and pool water for a week with no issues. The included feet that fit in the handle is a nice touch though I did not have a use for them yet. The nice thing with this item is that you have the option to adjust the angle at multiple points making it easy to avoid getting the arm in the camera for most shots. The regular item price around $70 is a bit over priced in my opinion but when it comes down to functionality I have no complaints.

    Great GoPro Accessory

    I recently purchased a GoPro Hero 5 Black. I was getting ready for a trip to Hawaii and wanted an accessory that could take the place of my selfie stick. I looked at a couple of other "sticks" made for GoPro, but found that the features of GoPro 3-way Mount to be more to my liking. I enjoy the fact that it is articulated at two points which makes it easy to get a "just the right angle" shot. It also has built-in tripod legs for those shots where you need a steady platform. I used it a several times. The only Con is; if you have the mount extended, it becomes a bit of a balancing act, since the tripod legs are short. Other than that I an really pleased with this product.

    GoPro Extension arm works great !!

    I love the Extension Arm and how it feels in my hand. It is lightweight, but feels very sturdy. The many ways this can be adjusted makes it easy to get great shots. The ONLY drawbacks I have are (1), the cost. It seems a little pricey at over $50. (2) It does not come with a wrist strap. There is a place for one, but it does not come packaged with one. As I mentioned in item number 1, for the cost over $50, I felt it should have included a strap. I contacted GoPro to ask why no strap was included, but only got a response that "the GoPro Team is always looking for better ways to improve their products and values customer input". After that ......silence. Like I said, great product. GoPro should have went the extra step and included the strap to make this item better.

    Decent extension arm, way overpriced

    This is a good, solid extension arm/selfie stick (although not as long as most selfie sticks). It can be collapsed and used as a short handle as well. The third use, however, is where it falls short--the tripod functionality. As many other reviews have noted, the tripod legs that come out of the handle are somewhat flimsy (I suppose they had to make them that way to fit in the handle). Therefore, setting it up as a tripod, especially with the arm extended, just isn't very stable. And, of course, my other criticism is that for what you get, this accessory is incredibly overpriced. Although that's a description that applies to pretty much every GoPro accessory.

    Surprisingly Versatile

    This was purchased prior to a vacation that I knew I would be doing some snorkeling. Surpassed my expectations. The unit is surprisingly stable, yet easy to adjust, even while in the water. It provided the perfect amount of extension to explore area where I could not fit. Also, it provided a means to get closer to less human-curious sea life. The tripod was also used for time-lapse photography. In this case, shorter lengths proved more useful. The unit is tall compared to its tripod base, and therefore tends to wobble in the breeze when fully extended. Lets face it, it could also be named the "GoPro Selfie Enabler", but I vow not to explore this usage case.

    Be careful with the tightening knobs

    It works great and I really like it. Just be very care with the two tightening knobs. You have to tighten them very tight because if not they could fall off. I was floating the river for and when I was getting off my tube to end the float I must have not tightened one screw enough because when I got to my car I noticed it one was missing. I had it the whole time so I know it had to have been at the very end when I as folding it up. Had to order replacement knobs on Amazon.

    I was very excited for this GoPro product and have been on the fence for months due to the $76 (including tax) entry price point. After finally getting a price match of $61 (including tax), I took the plunge and made the purchase and quickly realized the product was more hyped than what GoPro promised the 3 Way Mount would deliver. The tripod portion felt very flimsy and unstable and could barely hold the weight of the 3-way mount including my GoPro. To make matters worse, I did not get an opportunity to return the item within BestBuy's 15 day return policy and got stiffed with a $61 BestBuy Merchandise/Gift card.

    If you have a GoPro, you need this

    You have a selfie stick for your iPhone, right? Why would you not get this? It's a selfie stick on steroids. Really useful to hold the camera up, down and so on. The camera is small and if you want to keep it in your pocket, you will take it off this. But it is very useful to take photos and movies. My only complaint - it would be so nice to have a Bluetooth button to activate the GoPro shutter. Note that the GoPro Hero 6 that I have has voice activation but if you are outside with wind, you must SHOUT at the camera. No good!! So Bluetooth activation would be much better.

    best selfie tool for your gopro

    all in one mount that can be used in three different ways. With a three part arm, you can detach the top section as a simple grip; extend it into an adjustable arm; or lock it into a tripod. The tripod section collapses down and stores in the handle, and can either be attached to the base of the 3-way mount, or used on its own with the GoPro. The arm extends to 20” (50.8cm), collapses down to 7.5” (19cm). Since it's waterproof, it can be used in wet conditions too. With the multiple different applications, it can take the place of a handful of other accessories, making it the only thing you need to take out with you on your adventures.

    Not for the price point

    For $60 I have no clue why I bought this. It'a fully made from plastic but seems to do its job. It holds up and is sturdy. However, the length of the extension is short for my taste but the different angles you can bend the arm is good. The tripod stand that is attached on the stand is plastic and the threading on my tripod mount was a little uneven so whenever I use it, it shaves off plastic. So, I ended up buying a better tripod mount made with better quality from amazong for a little over $20 and it was worth it. So, I bought another one. I will still use this mount but not as often as I had initially thought.

    Versatile Mount

    I love that it is both an extension pole and tripod. However, it was really difficult initially to unscrew the bottom of the tripod to release the tripod legs, but once that was accomplished, it's been easy to screw and unscrew. I just don't twist it too tight when I'm securing. The extension pole is nice, but kind of worthless when there is no button on the pole to press to begin capture. However, if the voice commands are working, it works out fairly fine.

    Can't go wrong with GoPro brand accessories. I had tried two other brands of extension poles and returned both because of the sketchy adapters to mount and they simply did not deliver the durability and versatility it had promised. Got some nice video and pictures on a snowboarding trip (note very noisy with any contact to metal extensions if not fully extended, but lesson learned just a heads up). The well designed tripod is a nice addition, I use it way more than I thought I would.

    Picked up based on some good reviews. Pros: - Multi functional (tripod, adjustable self stick, single hand mount, etc.) - Can get shots without the 3-way showing - Tripod mount hides within the handle Cons: - Doesn't come with a hand strap - Take getting use to adjusting - Tripod mount doesn't lock with threading all the way down - Length is short at full extension - Feels like overtime the plastic MIGHT crack during tightening - Kind of pricey Overall, I'm liking this accessory. If you're all about the GoPro brand, definitely recommend to pick up.

    I first saw this product from a friend that had it for his gopro. So decided to get my own and I must say that is a great product and fairly easy to use . One product all in one package. I like that it can be a tripod as well as an extension pole. I also like that its foldable so you're not always carrying something big. You can pocket it if you wanted to. Overall, good product for your gopro.

    I was going to buy an off brand monopod for my gopro just to save money but was advised to buy the gopro version because it is made to withstand being in the ocean, which is what I mainly use it for. Defiantly worth the couple dollars more, I have never felt afraid that I was going to lose my gopro even in crashing waves, and it is lightweight and easy to carry around with you. I do take it apart and wash it after each time I take it in the ocean because the sand gets in the screws and makes it a little more difficult to bend but it is really easy to clean and doesn't rust!

    Good idea but needs major improvements

    The screws on this became loose as the stick is expanded. I didn’t realize this and a screw fell out while I was on a glacier and now the stick is not usable. For this price and the fact that gopros are used for extreme sports I shouldn’t have to continuously check if pieces are falling off the equipment. (I told my friend about this and it has happened to her twice as well, each on different hinges). Additionally if you tighten the screw you then can’t open the stick.. could break easily if you aren’t careful with it.
