After unboxing the entire package, here it is

At first sight it was quite heavy despite the plastic with rubber material. Each joint were really stiff, so in order to shape it you do need some time and get used to it.

Upon inspection on the material I found overall the rubber material do hold up pretty well. As for the footy part, the rounded rubber does pretty well, I tried to move it, shake it and it’s remained stick well onto the surface pretty well.

The joint were pretty stiff, which is a good news as it meant to be a tripod. So flexing it around could take some time but worth it.

Verdict

I’m still trying testing out this little toy, primary using it as a stabilizer for video recording since it’s flexible enough to be turned into dual hand holder. But giving the fact it’s way more cheaper than the original Gorillapod, I think so far it’s pretty worth it.
