GoPro Evo Floating Extention Pole

Floating extension pole was great for me because I'm not a very tall person and the extension really help get that perfect picture or video. It also floats so if you let go, it will float. I would rate this product on a 1-10 I would give it a 7. I found the strap the you put on your wrist is very awkward, maybe something with velcro.

good product

The only reason i did not give the product 5 stars is because: -I find the item pricey for what it is -The pole fogs - not sure if this is because water has gotten in -The handle strap isn't long enough otherwise, the product works well and is good quality.

Go pole shears and camera sinks to bottom of ocean

Well, the title says it all. The pole is quite flimsy for the price. Now we have a broken pole and no camera. Buyer beware! Be very careful with this flimsy, expensive accessory.

Overpriced but it works.

What I love about the product. - it is light - it does what it says it will do. The stick will float upside down both in salt and fresh water. - good length for reaching your subject or for a nice bird's eye view shot - the wrist lanyard is long enough What I dislike/can be improved. - overpriced especially for the material they use. - at a recent trip, another traveler had the same device. Water was going into the tube and fogging. Fogging doesn't really affect the device but it means there's a leak. This could cause the stick to eventually sink? - would like it to collapse even smaller about the same height as the bobber. - the camera attachment seems weak and could snap easily over time

Love that it floats , great in the water my kids loved using it . I also have had an issue with the nut cross threading , had to return one and now with my new one it takes a few tries to screw itself on without messing up the threads

Good quality

Used it for diving; it is good quality and functioned as advertised. There is one issue: the thumbscrew is easy to cross thread in the nut. The result is it takes several tries to mount the GoPro correctly. The issue seems to be in the nut and not the thumbscrew as other thumbscrews act the same way. Other than that, it would have been 5 stars!

cheaper at [another retailer] on line

Great pole for diving with camera. Have wrist band and diving recently another diver had the pole. Able to get into areas that I would not get to with camera on wrist. Also can flip camera and take video of you and your buddy. [...]

Perfect device for creating a stand-off distance..

I bought this to take underwater video with my GoPro Hero 3. It is the ideal instrument. The camera can be quickly re-oriented to take selfies, or to be aimed at other underwater wildlife or inanimate objects. The length of the pole allows the camera to be placed very close to otherwise timid creatures, capturing amazing close-ups. Almost neutrally buoyant, there's no weight or awkwardness to handling the camera and pole underwater. Construction is solid and the rubber handgrip and included strap ensure secure retention. Transparent build makes the pole almost invisible in underwater shots. Highly recommended.

Great clear pole

Pros Durable Lightweight Floats the gopro Stable shots Cons Not that portable The gopole evo is a great buy for someone looking for a mount to use scuba diving, snorkling, or taking pictures in the water. But if you are looking to use this while wakeboarding or any other watersports this is not the mount for you, it is too hard to hold and perform, the Chest mount, Surfboard Kit, or Adhesive Mounts are a better alternative. But overall anoer great mount put together by gopole. I have the evo and grenade grip and they are both great quality and easy to use. I would definitly recommend using Gopole mounts.

Perfect for the lake.

The Gopole evo is great because it floats and it's clear. I use it in the lake and ocean all the time. It's lightweight and strong. Definitely recommend if you are anywhere near water.

Outdoor Enthusiast

The evo is a great tool that every gopro owner should have. it is simple and clean so you don't see it in your shot as much. If you ski or snowboard it is a must. Out front facing yourself or trailing someone works really well.
