Although I like the concept and design, the execution could improve. The clamping screw is undersized, and the wing nuts and ineffective and also undersized. The first time I whipped a forward with the mast hero on, it came off the mast and my GoPro would have been lost, were it not for the floaty (that thing works!).
This is not a matter of not tightening the wing nuts: I'm easily strong enough to strip the treads clean off the screw with just my fingers (it's stainless afterall). I had that thing cranked down till I thought either plastic was gonna break or the threads were gonna strip and it still came off my mast. In my professional opinion*, the inside of the mast hero lacks sufficient grip to perform it's intended task. I would consider this a design flaw that's easily fixable by molding protruding dimples into the interior of the clamp, so it can grip the mast sleeve with sufficient force.
