Fantastic product but...
November 30, 2017
When I first looked at this product, I was impressed with it's wide range of features. The detachable wireless remote feature is a definite plus and the tripod feet and mount are rubberized. It holds the phone very well and is adjustable to many different angles. The key selling point for me was the detachable bluetooth remote, rechargeable battery and tripod legs.
The only thing bad I have to say about this is the build quality. A lot of people here are praising it but I view it much differently. For reference, I am a photographer and I use high quality tripods to support my DSLRs so I'm very familiar with the kind of builds. In the description, it clearly states that it is made out of aluminum alloy and rubber. However, after a careful inspection, the only part that is even aluminum is the extension, the rest is polycarbonate plastic. I'd say the product is 8/10 made up of polycarbonate plastic which makes the description very misleading. The fact that the tripod legs are made out of polycarbonate plastic is very concerning, these parts should be aluminum for stability.
I acknowledge that the use of polycarbonate plastic makes this selfie stick very lightweight, however I would not mind if it was heavier if they had used more aluminum to create this product, specifically the tripod legs. The extra weight would also add stability to the product and to reduce the likelihood of falling over. This is still a very good selfie stick nonetheless but there is room for improvement. I would recommend this product to anyone who's in the market for a selfie stick.
