ProGearX threw their hat in the ring of GoPro accessories/selfie sticks with their Extendable Pole for GoPro. Catchy name, I know. I used it while doing a few activities (most of them involved playing with my dog), and this pole stands out in a few areas, compared with other extending poles I've used in the past.
It's a lot lighter than other extending poles. I have yet to test its full durability (read: I haven't yet fallen on it while snowboarding), but from what I can tell, the aircraft-grade aluminum should hold up to most of what I'll throw at it.
A simple twist and pull extends the pole. It's a quick task to perform. At three feet with a GoPro viewing angle, you'll be able to capture a lot of the action. I've fumbled with extending poles on shoots before, so this is a nice feature. It's also waterproof for any bubbly adventures you might go on.
If you're looking for a lightweight extension for your GoPro, you can't go wrong with the ProGearX Extendable Pole. Pick it up here.
