I use my GoPro a lot and have used several different monopds with it. This one by Smatree is one of the best quality monopods I've used. I was provided with a free sample for review.
The monopod has 3 segments. Fully extended, it reaches 40". Fully compressed, it is 16".
The handle has a 6 1/2" foam covering that is firm and seems more durable than other foam handles I've seen on other monopods. It's long enough that you can easily handle the monopod even when wearing gloves. That also goes for the "fast lock clamps" that you loosen or tighten to adjust the length of the poles. The fast locks are covered in a rubber that makes them easy and secure to grip, with or without gloves on.
The monopod has an integrated GoPro mount with integrated CNC aluminum alloy molded nut so you never have to worry about losing the nut. I go nuts dropping and losing my nuts. Has it ever happened to you? I'll bet it has.
I wish I had this exact pole when filming the Spartan Race for NBC... it's a seriously solid build, while still being very lightweight.
Pros: - Easy to install your GoPro... took 30 seconds. - Easy to extend and retract. - The included bolt/screw is 10X better than the frustrating plastic bolt that comes stock with the GoPro. - Makes an awesome steadicam (see my video). - Cool color (metalic blue) - Swivel the camera around quite easily... barely have to loosen the bolt.
Cons: - Cracked my GoPro when I used this as a golf club. But it was an epic shot.
Note: It comes with everything you need (no additional bolts or screws) to mount your GoPro housing. I personally would remove the lanyard since it just bounces around.
Pro tip: Converts your GoPro into a Steadicam ('glidecam'). (see my video review)

Another quality GoPro pole/selfie stick by Smatree. Compared to my first GoPro pole by another company not to be mentioned, this SmaPole and every Smatree item I've ever used blows it out of the water. Once you unbox this thing and hold it, you will realize it's a solid pole with its aluminum-alloy build.
If you are a pure GoPro user, you will really appreciate the integrated mount on the head and the built-in nut. It's practically life changing. Many other poles have a 1/4" screw at the top and you need to use the tripod adapter to mount the go pro. The problem with that design is that many times is the screw on adapter that comes loose or dislodged from the top of the pol. By having an integrated mount, your GoPro is going no where. With the addition of the built-in nut (so you don't have to go looking for them when they pop out accidentally) and the aluminum thumb screw, your GoPro is firmly secured.
The quick release system is very simple and fast to...
