Just a tip...

If you are using in the water the handle tends to fill up and only drains out slowly via the small hole in the base of the rubber cover over the handle.

Thus after packing all your kit away you may wonder why everything is wet.

Shaking the handle up and down makes it dispense the water like a salt dispenser.

The solution BTW is to cut the rubber away on the base to make the hole larger.

The Gopole Grenade GoPro Grip is perfect for you that want to use you Gopro has a FlipCam, very confortable fit, you can have it in your hand for hours without pain, also, the fact that it is very small means that you can guard it in any bag. It brings a wrist strap that is very secure. I recomend you to buy this, you won't regret about it!

When you have lot of shooting from your hand, this is great solution. But discover that some extending poles can be much better (less shaking on video).

This product arrived today and does not look like the photographs.

First off there is no thumbscrew included with this. Although there is one clearly displayed in the product images.

Secondly the tether has no way of attaching to the grenade grip it just comes loose in the package with no screw to fit it to the base as also shown in the images.

Thirdly there is no sign whatsoever of the small carabiner displayed.

Finally this point doesn't bother me as much but it may to some people. The box that is shown in the product images is not what your purchase will arrive in. Mine came in a clear plastic pouch with piece of card with the item photographed on it.

Positive Nots:
It does come fitted with one metal nut.
I like the compact size.

To give you an idea of size;
When the product is in your hand the majority of the black grip is against you palm with just the blue mounting bracket sticking above your hand.

All in all so far I am disappointed with this product and I haven't even used it yet.

UPDATE:
I still have the product and Amazon support have provided me with assistance with my product not being complete. I highly recommend their customer support for many issues.

I'd say this is over priced at just under £20.

For that kind of money I would expect a screw to attach it with.

There's no proper place to attach the wrist strap, so I put it between the blue fingers before placing the screw.

This means each time you take your goPro case off the handle the strap is loose and likely to be lost.

Also, it feels cheep to touch.

This grip works (well, what's not to work with such a simple design) but it really isn't worth the money (currently around £20). None of the materials used is particularly special, as far as I can make out anyway, in fact the safety strap doesn't even have a dedicated point of attachment - without any instructions you sort of guess it has to go in amongst the screw fitting somewhere. As you can tell, I'm not very impressed.

What I received isn't what was stated in the pictures. I got something that has the same branding but looks like a cheaper version. Also the supplied strap has no way of attaching it to the bottom of the handle. Had I have known this, I wouldn't have paid £17 for it. The grip looks like it will do the job hence two stars. But buyer beware - It is just a cheap handle. Not worth £17.

Update:
Changed my mind - I've lowered this to one star as it is misleading advertisement.

I gave this 2 stars because the shipping was fast and came 1 day before set time. Otherwise this grip was a complete failure. I bought it to take with me to switzerland for a 10 day snowboard trip. I also bought this because I have used GoPoles longer extended grip before and I loved that thing but I sort of felt like it was a bit to long. So on my first day the screw with the keyring under the grip fell out on its own again and again even after tightning it so hard the ring started to bend, not a really a big deal because I have yet to drop a pole but it would be nice to know that even if you drop it, it was still is attached to your wrist.. And on my second day the top of the grip broke off in mid run. Thankfully I managed to find my gopro hero 3+ which had gotten buried pretty deep in the pow after falling off the grip. I have no idea why this happened or how this could have happened.. Either I got a very badly made sample, or I tightened the screw to much or it was to cold for the plastic ( -16°C and wind chill) or the damn thing is just very bad quality.. anyways I ended up just using the Gopro mount for my helmet which worked without a hick up unlike this. Don't recommend it at all which is a sad thing because I love the longer GoPole I have.
