Polar Pro Filters on Shark Tank

The entrepreneur behind the Polar Pro Brand is Jeff Overall from Newport Beach, California, who'll be appearing on the next Shark Tank Show in Episode 709 this Friday night. As a satisfied customer of a GoPro Hero 3+, the Polar Pro filter is one of those products I never thought about buying, that is not until I seen the video below. Jeff clearly has a passion for the Filming Industry and Outdoor Cinematography specifically shooting with Go Pro Cameras. The problem with making videos in the outdoors as we discovered on a skiing trip was the bright glare from the snow during certain times of the day. They're still badass videos bombing the slopes from the top all the way to the bottom, but that damn glare does get a little distracting.
Fortunately, Overall must have had the same problem and decided to invent the first snap-on filters for the GoPro cameras that solves this issue once and for all. Now why didn't Nick Woodman, a former Shark Tank Guest Shark in Season 6, and the inventor of the Go-Pro Brand come up with a similar solution?
Polar Pro Product Reviews before Shark Tank Episode 709Polar Pro already has a wide variety of Go Pro accessory products with several interesting (mostly positive) reviews. Some of the comments for the Polar Pro external microphone, for instance, had a problem with the connections in older reviews, but they listened to the customers and quickly resolved the issue. The Polar Pro also makes filters for the DJI Phantom Drone that currently has a 4.5 Star rating. Interestingly, the two reviews giving this product 3 Stars are not verified customers, while all the 5 Star reviews have made a verified purchase. The Polar Pro 3-Pack Polarizer Kits for the GoPro Hero4 and the 3+ (The product I'm interested in) has an impressive 4.7 Stars with all reviews giving this product either 4 or 5 Stars.
Now as far as Polar Pro getting a deal on the Shark Tank Show. Hmm, what are the odds the Sharks bring up the fact most of these products are accessories made for a fellow Shark Tank Investors Business? I don't know this for sure, but I'm assuming Nick Woodman doesn't mind companies like Polar Pro making accessories for his products, just as long as it's helping sell more GoPro's. On the other hand, even if he doesn't mind, Nick might care knowing one of his Shark Tank Investor Friends is now a direct competitor as far as selling Go-Pro accessories.
The one other option making the most sense to me is if Jeff Overall's open to Polar Pro being acquired by GoPro during this Shark Tank Episode. All the Sharks in Episode 709 can make a deal like that happen with a single phone call, and, well, Go-Pro certainly can use some good news as far as the stock is concerned.
Watch Polar Pro (Go Pro Filters) on the next Shark Tank in Episode 709 this Friday night, November 13, 2015, and see how the Sharks handle this potentially difficult situation.
