I’ll post up the video and pictures tonight

Yesterday I decided to go on a solo quad run to take some Gopro videos. All was going well till I drove through this gooey knee deep mud pit. When I got to the other side the Gopro was missing. I spent the next 3 hours in knee deep, up to my elbows in the icy mud puddle digging for it.


Good times oh yeah

One of these. The problem was not the clamp, my guess is the Gopro was not seated properly and when I came down hard over the last stump it popped off.

No the bat died before I could. If you Know the area, I went from this by-pass trail/mud pit, down to Burma/stave lake but the road is closed due to logging so I had to turn around again and head back home through the mud pit (running over the buried Gopro)

I Picked up a rake and hip waders and headed back. By now it’s dark and by the light of the quad I started my 3 hour search. It almost went from bad to worse when I didn’t leave my quad running and the lights killed the battery.

I was pretty cold by the end lol

I now know every square inch of that stupid mud pit and it’s well raked like the sands of a golf course.



You will not find any more pesky stick or stones on the bottom

When it comes to media products I demand the very best and test my shit to failure. I have not been able to break this mount or even shake it loose and i use it religiously for motorsports. Whether it's pulling G's or high impact this is what you need.

I know lets strap it to a nitro Harley

How about a 9 second race truck?

The point is If I can't break or lose this mount in 3 years of abuse,you can't either lol
