griptight pro gorillapod

Griptight gorillapod stand pro, in our opinion is the best tripod available out there.

Joby as a manufacturer could never go wrong while picking an iphone tripod. The best thing about picking it is you get a larger tripod with a robust metal head that locks and is covered with rubber which adds up in gripping your iphone.

With this metal head you can switch from portraits to landscapes like a snap and the head tilts in any position and locks as well.


  • Can be used for most of the iphones ranging from 2.2 to 3.58" in width
  • Reliable rubber gripping system for secure grip and avoiding grip marks in your iphone
  • Flexible joints help improving stabilization in plane as well as uneven surfaces
  • Bendy legs can wrap against trees and poles of hands free shots
  • 90° of rotation for landscapes and portraits and 150° of tilt that helps in avoiding glares


  • The ABS plastic used is a quality material but makes this tripod a bit larger than other similar products
  • The metal head adds up some grams and makes this tripod a bit bulkier

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your organization’s wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t
    mind me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind
    if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite
    a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google
    (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!


  2. Hello! I’ve been reading your weblog for a while now and finally got the courage to
    go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas!
    Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent work!

  3. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this content together.

    I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  4. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.
