The best sports accessory I have - makes fantastic films
on 4 March 2014
This is fantastic - as simple as that. I enjoy a variety of sports and enjoy videoing me and my mates during this. We have all tried a variety of "extension" poles but they havent quite lived up to our requirements. The XShot certainly does.
I bought it following a review from Zona and read more on XShots website. They say they have worked with action and sports companies to produce the perfect Extender and I believe they have listened and created that product.
The grip is oversized which is ideal when im wearing ski gloves and has these rubberised squares that give great feel - solid but with a slight give to provide a comfortable hold. The metal extension portions are pretty solid and unlike a couple of lower priced ones ive used they have a groves running down the middle that stop the poles rotating. I have a GoPro, Sony camcorder and Fuji camera that I like to use dependant on what we are doing so the two adapters that come with it are ideal. They are quick to change so I can take photos on my Fuji and then switch to the GP really easily.
If your into active sports and film yourself then this is for you. Im going to post up a couple of photos that I took skiing and whitewater rafting. Hope you like them as much as I did getting them!
