DO NOT USE FOR DIVING
on February 15, 2015
DO NOT use for diving even though GoPole support says it's great for diving. My husband used the GoPole he bought at Best Buy and his GoPro (both for the FIRST time) on our first day of vacation diving in Turks and Caicos. He took a few pictures while descending and then when he was down 90 feet he went to reach for it and it was GONE. The only thing left was the wrist strap. The entire dive crew and even the captain looked for it for almost an hour. No luck. The wrist strap design clearly is poor and having read some of the other reviews I question whether the rubber gasket was faulty and it sunk. Aside from the financial loss he was devastated that he couldn't take pictures and film his dives. He also had a Flip 3.1 color corrective lens attached to it which obviously he lost too. GoPole will only reimburse him for the GoPole and not the loss of the camera or lens. Of note, while walking on the beach we saw 2 teens with the same GoPole playing in the surf and told them what happened. They said it had already come unhooked from their wrist TWICE but they were able to retrieve it since they were so close to shore.
