This "selfie stick" is great. It's super lightweight and packs down small enough to stash in a big pocket or a backpack. It feels really sturdy for how light it is and I like the ease of use with having just the ball head adjustment. I've used it with both my phone and my GoPro. The shorter length is great for the GoPro since it captures such a wide field of view. If I were going to be using it more with my phone, I'd probably go with the longer one (Big U-Shot) to get the phone further away from me and capture more of the background. The wrist strap is great as I have a tendency to drop everything and lose stuff on the regular. For that same reason, the padded handle is AWESOME.
The U-Shot performed flawlessly in ideal conditions. In snow and ice, the only thing that I found was that it was a little hard to twist/untwist the extension while wearing gloves and not accidentally twist off my tripod mount at the same time. Also, though the carabiner is an awesome idea and is very handy, I took it off because when I was doing video, the mic picked up the metal sound of the 'biner swinging around.
Overall, despite the minor flaws I found, this thing is great! I have another similar product, and this one will definitely be replacing it :)
Thanks a huge bunch Backcountry.com and XSories for picking me to review this super fun U-Shot for the benefit of all you peeps in the backcountry.com community!
