I agree with everyone, kind of odd the first time...just didn't feel like I could ride the same as I could without it. Takes some getting used to especially if it's a bit heavier like the monopod I bought off Amazon and converted. Second time I didn't really notice it. I also agree it gives you much better footage compared to a helmet setup, etc.
The nice thing is you have to hold it semi steady so I don't have that retarded arm thing I do in all my helmet cam footage.

Re: gopole for the first time
I used it for the first time the other day and yes it was a pain in the beginning, but you get used to it. I was paying attention to it way too much at first which caused a few tumbles, but once you start ignoring it and ride as normal then it won't be any different than normal riding. Just don't keep looking back! :-)
Oh, you should have good balance to begin with... No mystery dates!

gopole for the first time
Going to use a gopole for the first time and was wondering how you guys like it? Does it hinder you from riding good or make you feel unbalanced? I will be using a pole approximately 38 inches long.Thanks for any tips!
