I wanted to have a light weight, non cheap looking, sturdy and yet extendable pole for my GoPro.
You can buy a nicely made commercial Gopole for 20-50 dollars depending on options.
You can make this for Under $10.00
Go to BigLots and under their paint section you will find this extendable paint roller for $5.00.
You will need a hack saw, stickers, para cord, tennis grip if preferred and electrical tape
Step 1: Get Your Hacksaw
Start cutting the tip of the red part near the end. The plastic and metal are soft so my rusty hacksaw cut through it easily.
