The GoPole Grenade Grip is awesome! There is just enough texture on the handle to keep a good grip & it's lightweight/portable... don't confuse that with cheap though. The Grenade Grip is sturdy & has already taken a solid beating with little wear to show!
It's solid quality and affordable!
GoPole, you should produce a stabilizer to give the Steadicam Curve a run for it's money! Just include a weight plate in yours so we can run it without the LCD or Battery BacPac!
