Honestly I think I will snap this. So far I have used it for body surfing at Sandy's on oahu. Powerful shorebreak. I used to just use a pvc pipe and this seems to have much less structural integrity. I'm just hoping that when I do break it that I can find the gopro. I also use the floaty backdoor when I have it attached to the pole for extra security. It definitely floats, but if you're in turbulent waters like a shorebreak then it will be a lot harder to find, and when someone else finds it who knows if you'll get it back. For someone who only goes out in casual or no waves, this is perfect, I highly recommend it. @ on instagram if you want to see my stuff.

Purchased the GoPole two weeks ago from B&H and used for the first time last week in St John USVI. Great tool and really like the size. The buoyancy is perfect even with the added weight of the LCD back.

The length enabled much closer photos and videos of fish, turtles and corals. Better than represented. Thanks B&H!

      Comments about GoPole EVO Transparent Extension Pole:

      I had to get this pole within three days and I bought it in the afternoon. They shipped it a couple hours after I made the order and received it within my desired timeframe. Great service, product was packed in a lot of bubble wrap so it was protected. I would buy from here again!

      Best Uses

      • Snorkel Swimming

      Comments about GoPole EVO Transparent Extension Pole:

      Bought this because it floats and is lightweight. It works as advertised. I only wish it collapsed and still floated rather than being a fixed length... 26inches is outside the length of most backpacks or carry on luggage.

              Comments about GoPole EVO Transparent Extension Pole:

              This was the best addition to my GoPros. It worked beautifully. I was able to film with my GoPro in all different angles. It truly makes it look like a professional film crew is filming you and following you around. If you like you GoPro as much as I do then you need to buy this !!

              I use it to capture action shots and film without paying for a film crew. I use it snowboarding, on my boat, swimming, and rafting to just name a few.

              Plus It's completely waterproof and will float with a GoPro attached to it.

                I use this for underwater shots of fish being brought in to the boat. I really like the fact that it floats so I am confident when I shove the whole thing in the water that if I loose my grip I won't lose my gopro.

                  Got the GoPole for for my trip to Hawaii and I just got back. I basically used it everyday to film and take pictures with my Hero 2 GoPro. Let me say that this GoPole was amazing. The transparent pole is hard to see in pictures. You can twist and turn your GoPro into many different angles for many different shots. It's great in the water. Does float!!! Good wristband as well. All around great product. I am not really a film professional but this made it really easy to get some good shots. I can't say I noticed any flaws.
