Your thoughts on GorillaPod

I have a couple of good tripods, ball heads etc. but want to get close to the ground for doing macro flowers. Was just taking hand held photos of the first flowers in the garden this year.

I have a Hoodman right angle finder, a focusing rail and use a Sigma 70mm 2.8 macro lens.

I am thinking of getting the GorillaPod zoom in order to get closer to the ground and would be interested in your experiences with the GP and other uses that you put it to. I believe that it would be a very handy accessory to have.

Our professional at our local Camera club was showing his Benbo tripod and I started looking at that but the GP seems to be a much cheaper and convenient way to go.

Thanks for your input.
