What Our Kickstarter Backers Say About Us

“Received my Max today. Solid construction! Nice sleek looks and the cloth travel bag is very nice. Cannot wait to take it out for a test run and this will make my next trip to Rickett’s Glen State Park very cool!”
— Stacy Butera (Max backer)
“I got my Platypod and I’m so impressed. Great build and so versatile. I’ve used for the DSLR on the ground and top of fences, also on one end of my Rhino timelapse slider and with a GoPro on a rocky ledge.”
— John Lafferty (Max backer)
“Max [is] worth every cent. Looking forward to any future products you make.”
— Mohammad Bokhary (Max backer)
“Great product, timely delivery. Received it in Hong Kong today!!!”
— Simon Ho (Ultra backer)
“Love this Platypod! I am most excited that with this newer model I don’t need to remove the platypod to be able to use a tripod. I love the strap mountings too. Great design!”
— Jeffrey B George (Ultra backer)
“Backer 1259 reporting from New Zealand that the Platypod arrived today in perfect condition. Very impressed with quality of product and presentation.”
— Theo (Ultra backer)
