2.0 out of 5 stars The concept of this product is good, mounting on wrist is handy (lol) and you ..., 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Review is for use on wrist while snowboarding. Mixed feelings about this product. The concept of this product is good, mounting on wrist is handy (lol) and you can ride without worrying about a stick, and it swivels around 360 degrees easily (too easily, more on that next). Point deductions for quality however. The swivel connector isn't the most stable, which annoyed me at first but bizarrely resulted in some quite decent 'shaky' close up footage often seen in action films, which is different from the clichéd selfie stick footage often seen on your home snowboarding video on youtube. Then the plastic snapped when I took a smallish tumble on a blue run, and my GoPro fell off my wrist onto the piste. If i'd been using this off piste hitting anything remotely gnarly, the risk of losing my GoPro would be high. So use at your own peril.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for use with GoPro Hero 3 while snowboarding, 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as an alternative to the GoPole / GoPole Reach for using while snowboarding. This extends much further and while at full extension it can be a bit heavy on the arm over extended use, there weren't really any such issues when the extension was shortened. The go pro was easy to attach to the end of the monopod using cycling handlebar mounts, all I had to do was cut up an old inner tube and wrap the rubber around the end of the monopod to make it thick enough for the handlebar mount to clamp on to (no need to glue anything to the monopod). The bonus is that the poles of the monopod are oval in shape rather than circular, meaning there is no danger of the go pro accidentally rotating around the pole during use. Each pole extension feels very sturdy and did not seem to affect the footage. The other bonus is that the monopod collapses small enough to fit into a day sack so I could carry it around everywhere! The wrist strap was a bit short in length but it still fitted around my boarding mitts, I imagine that this would be even less of an issue with fingered gloves which tend to be smaller on the hand. Have not tested this as a monopod with my SLR & 80-200mm yet tho!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent touch rugby boots, 7 Mar. 2011
Have played international level touch for years and these boots have served me well over the last year, including a European championship as well as a State Cup in Australia, not to mention the numerous rain soaked league games in Scotland. Fantastic grip on most surfaces, personally think that the asics cleat patterns are perfectly suited to touch in terms of the multi-directional movement (XBlades also have great cleat patterns). Tend to only slip on heavy and soggy mud surfaces, but what boot wouldn't. Also great support for the ankles, these boots are slightly sturdier than most touch boots i've seen, at not much weight cost either. Slightly wider fit too, unlike the early Cantebury touch boots (that fell apart after two games), but be sure to try before you buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars why haven't you bought this yet?, 8 Mar. 2008
This is the second best book that I have ever read. A truly amazing and shocking account of life under the Khmer Rouge. Its hard to believe one man can go through so much anguish. If youre interested in what went on in Cambodia during the Pol Pot years, this book is a must. The truly harrowing parts are forewarned so easy to skip through, but that would be missing the point.

The best book I have ever read is 'Down and Out in Paris and London' by George Orwell.
