The 10 Best Selfie Sticks

Me, My-selfie, and I: The best selfie sticks

There is no denying that humans love to take selfies (there is even a day officially dedicated to the art, June 21). But taking the best selfie requires patience, practice, and the right tools. While knowing which selfie apps are the best is important, getting your hands on a proper selfie stick is necessary to take your selfie game to the next level. While they are banned at all Disney Parks, The Colosseum, Buckingham Palace, and the MOMA, there are a million other places where they will come in handy (even if using one still turns you into a minor public nuisance). With new options and configurations, extra functionality, and sturdy build quality, we rounded up some of our favorite selfie sticks for catching group or solo shots, anywhere and anytime. With one of these you’ll be taking perfect selfies in no time.

Vimble 2 ($99)

Part smartphone gimbal part selfie stick, the FeiyuTech’s Vimble 2 is the perfect combination of the two — and the professional’s choice when it comes to phone selfies. Not only do the gimbal motors stabilize the phone for video shooting, they also allow users to adjust the angle of the phone using the integrated controls, making it easier to get the right composition. You can also quickly change shooting direction form horizontal to vertical. Plus, the new trigger button has a quick setting function, leaving your hands free while shooting. The built-in micro USB port allows for easy charging.

The CliqueFie Mini comes in an array of colors, and reduces to a smaller size, so it easily fits in your purse or bag without scratching any of your personal belonging. The polarized steel pole construction is very lightweight, but still strong enough to support your phone. You can extend the selfie stick up to 28-inches, and it retracts to just 9-inches. Features a matching remote that is controlled by wireless Bluetooth. The simple one-button design is easy to operate and convenient for shooting a phone or video without downloading any apps.
