XShot is a great accessory for taking cool videos, too.

I used it at the Lima Fair and rode the most extreme rides they had. At no point did the XShot perform in a way that made me nervous my much more expensive GoPro video camera would fall off.
The video speaks for itself.
Although the XShot is not listed as being waterproof it is made of aluminum which is waterproof. I used this on a turtle dive in salt water and didn't get around to giving it a fresh water wash down until several hours later. No rust but it did get a little harder to open afterwards. This is easily fixed by applying WD-40 waterproof silicone spray. Just spray it on then wipe away the excess with a paper towel.
The best way to use it for couples-selfies is as follows. Have one person hold the Xshot while the other one adjusts the camera zoom, tilt head, and framing. Once the camera positioning is good, the person holding the Xshot should pretend that the camera is a gun sight, and line it up with something stationary in the background (building, mountain top, tree branch, etc). The other person should then activate the self timer, press the shutter, then join the other person in the photo (or use a remote). Voila, excellent vacation photos.
You can also use this as a mini monopod in low light. Rest it on a table or railing or car and you have gained some extra stability for those evening shots.
You can also use it to shoot from new perspectives. Hold it up high to shoot over a crowd (use a remote or the self timer). Hold the camera low to get a bug's eye view. Or hold it out over a railing to get an unusual angle.
The unit collapses to basically a small pocket-sized short monopod. There is a indent/groove which prevents the sleeves from twisting, but there's still a little play when the unit is fully extended.
You aren't going to mount a Canon/Nikon DSLR on this. It's designed for small, lightweight cameras only. The heavier the camera, the more the play (because there's more weight to swing around).
Contrary to what I read in some of the reviews, the screw mount holds well, as does the rotating adjustment. It's well-built. I think the manufacturer designed and engineered the unit as best they could. For example, if they would have tried to make it more rigid, they would have needed clamps on the tubes and therefore would have made the unit more bulky. One thing I think they could have done is put small spring-loaded bearings/buttons from in the tube to better lock the unit open. Over time, I worry that the tubes will collapse as they become more loose.
Overall, I think this is an excellent tool for better looking still-photo "selfies" rather than use as an action cam video camera monopod. If you're planning on swining it around a lot for action shots on video, I think the unit is going to start to have more play. But for occasionally taking a great selfie or getting an interesting angle on things with a still-photo camera, this is a great tool.
I used this stick while snow skiing and was overall happy with it.
so I know it will hold up over time.
I never go on a video or photo shoot without my XShot.
I make videos on YouTube .... my channel is ..... "ZONA FILMS" ......and I use this on all my videos.
it gets me the shot i can not get without it.
There are so many more uses of this item than just taking a "selfie" photo.
It is lightweight and small so it fits in my purse very easy.
people come up to me and ask me about this cool item ALL the time.
It will always attract attention when you use it.
I LOVE my XShot!
I have a review and DEMO of this on YouTube on my channel .... "ZONA FILMS"
