Very suprised at the quality of this for the price. I didn't want to spend that much on a gorrilapod but wanted somthing of a decent height that would still fit in a jacket pocket.
This fit that criteria and the foam on the legs is a nice addition. Some reviews said the legs are hard to bend as are very stiff, but I found this was a bonus as it felt more secure. I purchased a decent ball head mount to go on the top which really makes this a useful tool...just remember that switching it on the ball mount to portrait can over balance it...so you need to make sure the legs are well spread (ooo eer).
