REVIEW: 2 Cool Rigs! Norbert Sport & Tadpole from K-Tek

I just did a little review on 2 cool rigs from K-tek. The "Tadpole" is a mini bom pole for putting small cameras like the GoPro on, and the "Norbert Sport" is a larger rig for DSLR cameras. I'd love to hear any feedback you have on these units.

What kind of fruit is that growing on the tree at 3:42?

Interesting fruit. They look a bit too big to smoke, though.

I see you meant the apple tree that came a few seconds after what I was talking about. Oops!

Hey, Chad...

Great review, as usual.

Two things:

1. That hammock in your backyard looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

2. It would be very helpful if you would add links to the products in your posting. I know that makes me kinda lazy, but I always want to price out the stuff you review.

Thanks for taking the time to do your reviews and post them here. I really appreciate it.

Regards,

t.

The tadpole is about 100.00, and the Norbert sport is around 250.00.
