How is this better than a JOBY GorillaPod exactly? Never seen this, and while the legs of the Gorillapod are at least mechanically joined, and work by friction, I assume these 'rubber' legs, while probably 'grippier' contain a bendable/deformable metal rod that will eventually wear out/crack?
It does seem like this is right in the price range as the GorillaPod 325/500 if it's a decent drop. So if anyone can point to a legit comparison of the two brands, I'd like to see it. Googling isn't doing much to help.
