Even more annoying then the cracked cups is that I cannot find replacement cups.
When I noticed the cracks I thought "oh no problem I bet they sell individual replacements" As far as I can tell, No they don't.
Would rate at 4 stars if replacement cups were available. Becuase aside from that its what I wanted it to be.
After two months of light use, the second joint down on one of the legs has cracked and no longer supports any weight, causing the tripod to now only function in "laid out flat" or "curled around something" mode, and is unable to stay upright. I was initially very happy with this product but have to give it a 1 star for failing to meet even the most basic durability requirement: stand up and not break.
The product worked great for 3-5 uses until the plastic cracked that the ball heads get inserted into. The plastic cracked on the very top and on several other legs throughout the Gorillapod. I was wondering why it was not standing up properly when I had my camera on it. The legs would give out and I would have to really tweak it perfectly to have it stand properly. This gorilla pod never went outside, my camera weighs less then 2lbs and I am very disappointing in the fact I now have to buy new tripod legs (which are not cheap by the way) this accessory is necessary for my vlogging and I DO NOT want to purchase a new set of Gorillapod legs every quarter (I purchased this in march and it already broke) I could see 1yr...I get it, but 4 months with minimal use? Nope. Not a happy customer. The products great, if it's not cracked / broken...but that's not the case in my situation. Maybe I got a faulty one? I have no clue.
I would love to be sent a new set of legs so I don't have to purchase a new one & would be more then glad to take this review down.
Attached are photos and videos clearly demonstrating the cracks in the tripod legs and also how UNSAFE this is to use if this occurs. This was not used to wrap about trees, fences, etc I used it a couple times for vlogging, otherwise it sits on my desk for my youtube shots

The Bad News
I purchased it because I needed a compact tripod that is light and easy to carry. What’s more, I needed a reliable stand to hold my SLR during my photography work. I read several Amazon reviews that praised the JOBY for its literal and figurative flexibility. According to those reviews, the SLR Zoom could easily handle the weight of my Canon 7D and 28-135mm zoom lens. Now I hate to say it, but those reviews were wrong. The SLR ZOOM cannot handle 4 pounds of weight, which is the 7D camera body and zoom lens combined. This was really disappointing to me. Here is a direct quote from JOBY: “The GorillaPod SLR Zoom can fiercely secure equipment up to 6.6 lbs.” I think that is a little misleading. Perhaps there is some kind of wacky leg configuration that I don’t know about. But I posed this GorillaPod in numerous ways and I just don’t feel confident setting up a shot and walking away from my expensive camera.
Here Comes The Good News
I purchased this item in September of 2015. It is now 2017 and I still use it every day. After reading my previous section, that probably makes no sense, right? Let me explain. After I realized that I could not use the SLR ZOOM with my Canon 7D, I decided to use it with my iPhone and Nikon Coolpix, which are both compact and lightweight. That is where this product really shines. It is perfect for holding compact devices. You simply need to purchase an adapter. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about, simply do a search on Amazon for “smartphone tripod mount.” You will figure it out immediately. You have probably seen these adapters connected to selfie sticks. If you have a selfie stick, simply unscrew the adapter, which holds your smartphone or compact camera, and pop it on your SLR ZOOM. Like I said before, I use this thing every day. For example, I have an iPhone 5 and I hate using it for selfies. However, when I want to take a photo of my wife and I, I simply connect my iPhone to the SLR ZOOM and I can position the rig anywhere. Here are places that I have used to set up group photos: a tabletop, the back of a chair, a chain-link fence, a tree branch and even the top rung of a 12-foot ladder. Use your imagination and set your camera’s timer. So far, I have taken the SLR ZOOM to Canada, Mexico, Japan, Spain and Australia. It’s well built and the legs are still pretty tight. They’ll probably get a little looser if you use it every day like I do. I really give my SLR ZOOM a beating and toss it everywhere. I think it’s worth the $43.99 that I paid in 2015.
The Bottom Line
I wish I could give this product five-stars. However, it does not live it up to its promise of carrying 6 pounds of weight. But I still love the product because it works really well for smartphone photography. It is very well constructed, the octopus legs can grab on to almost anything and the high quality ballhead makes shot set up a breeze. It’s a little pricey, but this tripod is a solid investment, which should outlive your next two smartphone upgrades.
