    There are 1000 different products offering the "same" result for a fraction of the cost. However, understand that manufacture backed items are usually put through more tests and trials than that plastic un-tested deal. This pole exceeded all of my expectations. I had read reviews on the cheaper poles only to find out some had thethem bend, crimp, break, or ultimately lose their GoPro in the worst case scenarios. This pole has 3 different levels of extension, which gives you the comfort of being able to reach over the largest of crowds or even give you that little bit more reach standing on top of a tall structure. I subjected this pole to minimal water, which was merely splashback from a boat ride we took in Belize. I felt comfortable enough with the design, that I placed the camera close to the water to get a unique view of our ride. Get this pole vs another cheaper made pole if you plan on using it for extreme situations or frequent uses. I watched a similar looking pole come apart of a guy on a beach in Cozumel rendering the pole useless once it got sand in it.

    This is a must have if you have a GoPro. It has 3 different lengths you can use, just slightly turn it and you will feel & hear a click then you can turn it back and click it to lock it's position. Cool thing is that it has a ball joint so you can easily tilt your camera to the desired angle/position without having to take it off and remount it. This is the sturdiest selfie stick I have come across, yet not heavy. The grip is comfortable for any spot you grab on the handle...with one hand or two hands. Doesn't feel flimsy when you sway back and forth and it can mount on a tripod. The El Grande is waterproof, but doesn't float; you can probably install a floaty on your camera door and it will work. It has 2 holes at the bottom of the handle to drain water out. It's well worth the money I spent on this product. I would highly recommend the El Grande if you need a selfie stick.

    must have for gopro

    if you own a gopro this is a must have. I needed it to jimmy the gopro up into corners for shots i couldn't normally access (not for selfies) and this has worked great. It's very sturdy, more so than I thought it would be and it's very well balanced. If you are getting one of these I would spend a few bucks extra and get this one, the cheaper ones didn't feel nearly as 'pro' as this one. glad i got it

    ...especially to get that ‘from a second viewpoint’ perspective and setting up the second GoPro on it and be about twice as far away from my work with this camera and allow the viewer of the resulting edited clips to see from a second viewpoint, getting a slightly larger context of what I am recording with the use of two simultaneous cameras recording it all.

    Just got this as an impulse purchase was on sale and decided be a good time to try it. Haven't really found any good uses for it yet. It's built well sometimes the metal bars seem a lil weak with the gopro attached and fully extended. I'd expect it to be a lil more firmer and higher quality but it's still a nice item I'm sure I'll find a use for it one day.

    For my previous GoPro I purchased after market monopods. GoPro only had mounts for the most part, I’m glad they came out with these. They are sturdy in all conditions, in water or not, holds the GoPro firmly and as of now have not experienced blurry photos/video. A plus is its sleek design.

    I like this thing. Jane had a few selfie stocks in my time. Most are cheaply made and super light. This one is about different. Solid sturdy construction, a tad heavy, but works well. Has a tripod screw in option on the bottom, which will come in handy I imagine. Nice rubber grip, and the 360 swivel makes it very versatile.

    A great tool to use with GoPro. It would be 5 star if it come with a little tripod. Well design and balance. Provide extra range for the shots you want. You can get some small tripod to complete it so you can accomplish more. Also get a remote for your GoPro, so you can control your GoPro easier.

    This pole works very well. It is stable, easy to get in and out, and hasn't rusted at all. I used a cheaper off brand pole before and after using it in the ocean, it began to rust and fall apart. This product has been in the salt water several times and continues to perform well.

    The GoPro - EL Grande 38" Monopod is sturdy and feels comfortable in hand, the ability to extend makes it it versatile for those higher shots angles or over barriers. The tripod mount is a plus (just in case). I like it!

    I took this stick on a recent vacation and it was perfect to take shots of myself and the group I was vacationing with. The stick easily collapses and is very sturdy in all lengths. The best features are the rubber grip on the entire base and the 360 rotating top. Money well spent.

    Wow. This camera pole by GoPro was perfect for snow skiing. It is easy to adjust and fits in your hand perfectly. The textured grip is easy to hold on to. Don't buy a third party pole, buy this one!!!

    Any sport filming needs an extension especially if using 360. This is lightweight and easily extendable and lockable. Have used it for skiing with GoPro Fusion and it makes for some amazing photos.

    It served its purpose. I didn't have any issues with it. A bit expensive for its function, but it's a snug fit for my GoPro so I don't have to worry about my GoPro falling/sliding off once it's attached to the stick.

    Great grip. Easy to handle. Thanks to its 38" length, it gives you a nice panoramic view of your surroundings. Used it while in a 14-day trip of Europe and pictures look amazing. When contracted its still a perfect size for selfies.

    Always go with the Go Pro Products. My brother bought the knock off products and lost his go pro in the ocean. Really nice selfie stick you can take it anywhere and it is water proof. It also extends for great pictures and videos.

    Not a lot of features for the price, but it's very sturdy and extends to a good length. My only annoyance is that it has a large connection assembly due to the ball configuration vs using a single connecting point.

    Not too sure what to use this on yet was on sale so I decided to pick it up. It’s pretty sturdy I wouldn’t load more then a camera on it tho. Cause the weight of the camera causes a Lil flexing.
