Thought about it...but then got the retractable one for $20 folded fits in my shell pocket. Wow. $11 on Ebay...Camera-Handheld-Telescopic-Pole/251129390716

SB4L Nice mount. I had to look up what "dowels" are. Feel pretty newbie for that one.

I love DIY projects but lack motivation / tools to do them mostly, however this is one that I can sink my teeth into.

Holding the gopro in your hand just does not cut it. Some good, cheap ideas here.

Yes, and that was a major plus for the gf....

Don't equate nice things with having money and don't equate having money with being able to just buy anything you want. Most people have money because they don't spend it.
+1 youve got your head on straight

WasatchMan nice man - I ended up ripping the towel bar off my bathroom wall and wrapping the handle with hockey tape.

mhaas I dont think Ive seen one that wasnt homemade. Im also impressed with the lack of excessive ducktape on those. If everyone just bought shit when they needed it, innovation wouldnt happen. And why lets the cost cutting corpotrate number crunchers decide what works best. Nice work guys. I like the swifter one the best

Karpediem If you don't want to order online, you could try checking out your local camera shop if you have one.

boardneub The biggest problem i had was lack of support with local big box stores. All my local best buys and Future shops dont have much of a gopro section, so it was either order one online, which could possible take a while or make one.
