Default FS: GoPro Pole mounts,Check them out!

Don't hassle with trying to make one, when we have them ready to go! CHECK OUT OUR WEB PAGE!

We have 3 sizes of pole mounts for your GoPro filming needs! All are light weight, strong, and use the standard GoPro clip mount!

If you have any questions, just let us know.

Here is a snowboard video shot with our 30" pole. Enjoy!

You guys should make retractable pole mounts. That's where it's at brah.

I have a prototype made with a broom handle and duct tape.

We are looking into it. There are a few issues surrounding the telescoping action, so we don't want to put a product out we don't believe in. You really can't beat the lightness and mobility of our current products, which makes them so easy to use and transport.

How friendly is it to stuff the pole in ones backpack? I love this idea, (I'm a lazy person!) but I hate riding and holding stuff in my hands.

I hate carrying shit too, and I also prefer not to have a backpack but with the pole you either need to carry it with you all day or backpack it. the 20" length probably fits in most backpacks with little trouble, but if you go 30/40 inches you're going to need to use the loops on your pack designed for either shovel or poles to accommodate it.

IMO (and with relatively little experience using the GoPro) the 20" length is not long enough for self-filming although it would be adequate for follow-cam. When I was using mine last week I did not extend the pole at all and I can definitely see how the footage would've turned out waaaay cooler if I had extended it even just a little bit - you just get a much better perspective and field of view with a longer pole mount.

Also my $0.02 the 40" pole is probably too long to carry comfortably unless you're 7 feet tall this thing will reach from the top of your head to below your hips.

From the looks of it they use a gopro mount. Im sure you could jerry rig anything though.

Thanks for the questions.

The 20" pole would easily fit inside most backpacks, but like you said it isn't ideal for filming yourself. The 30" pole is not that hard to carry around all day as it weights in at 0.5 lbs (without camera) and does fit in a shovel/ pole pocket. The 30" pole is the "all around" pole that will allow for POV and shots of yourself. Our 40" doesn't weight much more, which still keeps it easily portable. The 40" pole may be a little difficult to carry, but once you see the shot you get... it is more than worth it!

The beauty of Boomstickz is they can be easily handed off, so one person doesn't need to be carrying it all day.

C_mack9, we use the standard receiving end of the GoPro mount, so that all the extras that come with your GoPro camera will work with our pole. This also means you can switch from POV to filming your self in a matter of seconds!

This is the mount on the pole:
