After reading all the available reviews I could find on this product I took the plunge and bought it. First I was pleasantly surprised about the extras included in the kit, including a T-Pod, a very stirdy device.
The TrekPod GO PRO is a significant lump, and not a lightweight walking pole, therefore I would not recommend it as a companion on regular ramblings when you might use your camera. However if you are on the move looking for possible photographic opportunites, for instance country churches, vernacular buildings, then it is great. Similarly as a companion at a sporting event as a crossover between mono and tri-pod.
It is not sold as or intended as a tri-pod but it is quite stable at minimum height in calm conditions.
Finally the tip is not intended for prolonged walking therefore I use a 1" rubber walking stick ferrule is used as an easily removable protection for the 3 feet.
