Rated 3 out of 5Â by tommeegan Good for the price, but...
If you mount the GoPole - Arm on something that vibrates or will take sudden shocks â end of snowboard, bicycle handlebars, hood of a car â the vibration will probably make the footage unusable, and the joints might not hold up to the bump.
If you mount this on on your helmet, your neck and shoulder will provide sufficient shock and vibration dampening to make your results quite good. On a snow board we got cool shots looking back at us on the lift, but the Arm didn't stay framed past the first rough patch on the trail, and the vibration was awful.
The GoPole - Arm is adequate for the price. There is likely a market for something more expensive that performs under more extreme circumstances.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TheMountainBiker Pretty cool product, in my opinion.
I bought this last week, and I got it yesterday. I was a little bit worried because a lot of the reviews say that it's wayyyyyyy to wobbly, or not sturdy. When I got it and put it together on my helmet, (I ride mountain bikes) I could definitely tell why people say that. The arm would move at the slightest breeze. My solution was, just use one arm! I had a mount underneath my visor for my GoPro, and I mounted the pole there. It was one hundred times steadier, but that shot only got the face, and none of the bike. So, I put a sticky mount on top of my visor, and adjusted my GoPro a bit, and now it's perfect! And because I only use the one arm, it's SUPER sturdy. Doesn't really move at all. It's awesome.

It seems to be a good product but it could be a bit longer.

I bought it about 2 weeks ago and went out with it this past weekend. My only complaint is that it has to constantly be adjusted.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MLZelenik Awesome for Full Body
Bought the ARM for a ski trip to Montana. I wanted to get a full body shot without sacrificing my use of both poles. This fit the bill perfectly. The ability to adjust the length between one or two arms is perfect. I only used one all trip and it got the perfect, just above the goggle, frame I wanted.
The overall quality of the ARM seemed very sturdy and I was able to adjust the high torque screws with my gloves on.
