|deagol||thanks for your input. I have used a gopro head and chest mounted in the past and don't do it anymore, except for special circumstances.|

|Fewdfreak||I did not feel that it affected my riding at all, I generally just keep my hands at my sides when I ride so did not mess with me. The key is to extend it out so you get a full frame of view before you start riding so you do not have to worry about positioning. I rode with it out in front hand and also in back, was a bit easier in back but I think it was bc I am right handed. I hit a few boxes and like a tiny kicker with it as well but no big jumps. I slid out and fell once while riding with it and was kinda worried about breaking it but it was fine. My biggest two complaints were that my arm got tired after a while of holding the pole out and then I had no where to stash the pole afterwards/pockets too small in coat. I have a tiny camelbak that I might try putting on under my coat and throwing it all in there when I don't have it out. I do not tape myself that much but I might more as season goes on and I start to get bored.|

|deagol||to those that ride with these poles: how does riding with these poles change your riding style, if at all?|

|cookiedog||I'm just curious, are these thing heavy?|

that 2nd shot is awesome Mizu Kuma
I tell you. Mine might be a tad heavy but what are you, girly wristed. For the price it's held up great. My kids and their buddies use it all the time and so far it has held up just fine. Not one of them has said "gee it's just to heavy to hold" just sayin

Yep, the trouble with the sectioned ones is exactly what you described!!!!!
My Cleaning Pole nock up from Bunnos, cost me ~ $14, extends to about 140cm, and collapses to 70cm!!!!!
It's a lockable/twist type, with a PVC Electrical Elbow Socket screwed onto the end, with an FCS fin GoPro adapter glued into the open end of the elbow joint!!!!!
It's made from steel so it's tough as, and to counterweigh the thing I just hold it 20cm or so from the end of it!!!!!
A pain in the arse to carry around I know, but ya could always stash it somewhere and return later, or what I do is just take it out on one or two days, share it around with mates!!!!!
Lets face it, how much footage do ya really wanna be editin anyways?????

Sorry for the bump, but I didnt want to start a new thread, so i bought this monopod last season at the recommendation of this thread- Amazon.com : NeewerŪ Extendable Self-portrait Camera Tripod Telescopic Monopod for Digital Camera & Camcorder : Camera & Photo
and it was a complete fail!
The camera would swivel upside down the first time you hit a bump of any sort. So im back on the hunt for a good solid monopod, thinking about these two
anybody have experience with these?

We have several of them and lots of accessories so I forgot to add that you would need this mount also.
We have put this GoPro on everything - motorcycle, paddleboards, autocrossing, bicycle helmets, take the pole on hikes, we even rigged a mount for our wakeboard tower, used it for ziplining - made a shoe mount for it - got great video!
Just last weekend my husband was saying how of all the telescoping poles we have tried, it is the best, lightest and fits into his cargo pants or jacket easily. He loves it!
