The UFO2 Plus is lighter and smaller (but not shorter) than the GorillaPod 3K, and that’s a godsend as weight and space is of paramount importance when I’m traveling. Both the GorillaPod and UFO2 are really nice tripods, and they both have their respective strengths and weaknesses. I like the fact that the UFO2 has slim legs that I can easily grip and carry as selfie stick. I also like that the legs are really easy to twist into any position I want as it makes it infinitely easy to securely wrap the tripod around poles and railings. Much more flexible that the GorillaPod. The camera mounting head swivels 360 degrees and locks into place with a convenient quick release lever (as opposed to a knob) which I really appreciate. The camera screws into tripod. Would have been nice if tripod came with a quick release plate for easier camera mounting and dismounting. There’s a bubble level on the mounting head that I wish was bigger as it’s a bit difficult to see. The UFO2 Plus is rated for cameras up to 1.2 kilograms (or about 2.6 pounds) which is plenty for my cell phone and Nikon D5600.
