I wouldn't consider this to be a terrible product, but surely it's not a high-quality one. It's benefits are that it's rather light-weight and compact but is extendable. However, there are quite a bit of negatives to it. It's obvious whenever you have the pole in your hand that it's not made of very durable materials. When the GoPro is mounted and the pole is extended, the pole bends downwards noticeably. The mounting mechanism which allows you to turn the camera tends to loosen as well. And this is definitely NOT intended for use in water; after using it in water for a day, it began to rust.
Although I was able to get some good footage with the use of this pole, I really believe it's more of a nuisance to use and the quality of the pole overall isn't exactly satisfying. I'd recommend spending a little more money to get a pole of high-quality that will last you.
