Despite selfie being so popular last year, I don’t own a selfie stick myself. And hence when I was in Hong Kong last December, I am determined to get a good one.
I chanced upon the YunTeng Monopod Selfie Stick in SIMCITY (47-51 Shantung Street, Mongkok, Kowloon) and it was the best quality selfie stick that I can find within budget of S$20. In fact, it cost only HK$98 (S$17).
Surprisingly, Amazon carries it as well and it is named Brand YunTeng 4-Section Retractable Handheld Monopod Selfie Stick for GoPro Hero and it cost US$15.99 (S$22).
YunTeng Monopod Selfie Stick weighs 210g and it can support up to 2.5KG of weight. It’s height is 43cm and it can be extended till 123cm via it’s 4-section retractable body. It’s grip is made of sponge and it comes with a phone holder.
I am not the fan of those monopod that is commonly available as shown in the image below because the quality doesn’t look that good and the prices varies so much between shops. I saw the cheapest was like S$5 and the most expensive was like S$19.90. The only good thing about it is that it is compact.
