I've used poles for years, but had a hard time finding something that would retract to a size small enough to fit into a bag for travel. Voila! This one fit, and in the field, changed my ideas about how poles are supposed to work. This one allowed support, not just stabilization, and as I age, I ...

This will go to a friend who has different requirements than do I for a walking stick. I anticipate the mechanics will be good -- easy to use like my own Leki walking poles. Surprisingly, the paint job on this particular stick wasn't top flight -- as if the shop had dust flying around on the day the 'cane' was produced. The handle is quite comfortable and is improve able primarily by making it of cork or something that won't 'sweat'. I like that this style comes with a rubber tip to soften the touch.

I have tried most brand name medical looking type canes over the years myself now being 65. I became disabled at the age of 30 so believe me when I say I have tried most all types of canes and I have always disliked the medical looking ones. I even tried a couple hand wooden carved ones but still those were to heavy. While at the Pain Clinic I go to I noticed a gentlemen with what appeared to be a totally different looking cane. I asked him about it and things such as where did he get it - how does he like it - than he said try it you will like it - I gave it my test and I wanted one then. But he couldn't remember the web site he purchased it at but I remembered the brand so I looked it up on the internet. Wow so expensive even at Amazon.com. The Leki website no longer sells them and while I checked other sites I found out there are if I recall 4-5 models to chose from depending on the features and price one would want to pay. I found the most reasonable price was at SIERRA Trading post by far. I didn't need the most expensive one with the built in shock feature at $74 - $84. I just needed a decent non-looking medical cane that was lite - did its job yet had that kind of sporting look to it. Well the fantastic price Sierra was selling this cane for how could anyone go wrong. I received it in a timely manner - it was over the Holidays so I expected it to be the 5-6 working days before I received it and I was right. I ordered mine over the phone and a Female Employee & was so kind and when she added by the way as a first time buyer you receive an extra discount. What a deal for a cane that I love to use - take the rubber tip off and the tip is made to dig into the ice to keep it from slipping. I also love how adjustable it is and the quality is impressive. The only reason I gave the cane a 4 is the handle is a bit small compared to the one the gentleman had that I tried out. Other than this I have been using it every where. And SIERRA Trading post are super nice to do business with. Thank You
P.S. Sorry for such a long review but that's just me.
