I purchased this Cane Grip Trekking Pole when my physical therapist told me I needed to adopt the use of a cane to help with proprioception (perception of where my body is in relation to my terrain and surroundings). I wasn't ready to accept an all-out cane and saw this as having less of a stigma. I... Read More

    This is just the right size and weight for general street use as a cane. The cork grip is nice but since it rains 100 inches per year here, I would prefer that the cork be coated or that it had a plastic handle.

    This is my first attempt to use a cane or walking stick. I bought 2. I've used them about a week and they make a big difference for me, since I have vertigo and osteo-arthritis, and following a recommendation that cane/sticks will help with joint pressure. These are nice...but my first so this isn't a comparison. I like the cork handle, and 2 choices of grip, holding the top part of the handle like a cane, or gripping the handle around the circumference, like a walking stick. I have to open it up all the way to use as a walking stick, and it seems less sturdy to lengthen it, but I notice it gives some, which is actually nice to have the flexibility.
    The instructions are minimal, but the adjustment mechanism is pretty straightforward. I bought new tips, but couldn't figure out how to get the original ones off. Will have to figure that out, because they're slippery on some indoor surfaces.
    Overall, I like these, and think they'll be a great help.

    I ordered this trekking pole because I have very painful arthritis in my hands, and thought that the cane handle would be helpful. Unfortunately, the handle offers no advantage over conventional trekking poles. The trick I have since learned is to put all your weight on the strap without grabbing hard - thus sparing your hands.

    I've used the Komperdell trekking poles for years--loved them!
    However,after 2 back surgeries, I wanted the most secure grip available--these cane grips are ideal; and I know I can count on the safety and reliability of the Komperdell products!
    Thank you!

    Great product. Have got a second one after I managed to plop my full weight down on and bend/ruin the first one, stupid me! need a cane for stability after an accident and subsequent stroke. I used to be a hiker and backpacker who always used trekking poles. This can be used both ways... 1) Lower the height and use the horizontal, cane-like grip at the top for a typical cane feel. 2) Extend the height and use the vertical grip for a typical trekking pole feel, where one's hand and arm holds the pole at a higher spot. Of course, you can make them smaller. When fully shortened, you can put in the side pocket of a backpack if desired for some reason. Also, you can pack in a big duffel along with your backpack when flying somewhere for a backpacking trip. Getting the accessory rubber tip cover is a good idea to protect floors, but outdoors on natural terrain or ice, the metal tip serves its purpose well. I can't speak to whether the shock absorption feature really works, but I guess I do have it on. All in all, great!

  • “Can the "basket" that sits at the bottom of the cane be removed?”
    Asked by nom from Wisconsin on 7/27/2017 3:41:40 PM
    • Yes. Be sure you keep it for sand, mud and snow.

    • Please recognize that I am a customer not a company representative. It looks to me like a repair, if it is possible, would have to be done at the factory. It may not be possible if the break involves damage to the screw threads.

    • Note that I am a customer and not a company representative. If a repair is possible, it would probably be done best at the factory. If the break involves damage to the threads, it may not be repairable. Why not contact Komperdell, the manufacturer? FYI, the trekking pole has recently been available online at a reduced price as a clearance item. Significant discount. Worth checking out.

  • “Do this pole sold as a pair or as an individual pole?”
    Asked by Mike from World on 11/18/2015 2:05:36 PM
    • This is a single, cane style, pole
      Answered on 11/18/2015 5:03:08 PM by Fletchere from PA
    • This pole is sold as an individual pole. It is adjustable for height preference but it is not the same length as the ones usually sold as trekking poles. It is stable; feels good in the handle, has a degree of shock of absorption. I recommend the caps (sold as two) for the pole tips for non-skid on smooth surfaces. Serves right-hander or left-hander.

  • “Does it come with rubber tips to use it as a cane?”
    Asked by Walker from New York on 9/13/2015 10:24:27 AM
    • No, but Sierra Trading Post sells the rubber tips for a good price. My poles came with vinyl / hard plastic covers for the tips but these did not grip the surface and just skidded out from the weight. So I recommend throwing out the plastic covers and replacing with new rubber tips. They last a long time. Walked 250-300 miles across Spain using this poles with the rubber tips and they are still going strong.
      These are great poles!

    • Mine came with one tip for the one cane. I use it more for the trekking use but I've managed to not lose the tip yet.
      Answered on 9/13/2015 2:48:42 PM by Backwoodsyogini from Maine
    • I do not recall rubber tips coming with the Pole. I bought mine, a set of two branded Komperdell, for about $7 or $8 thru Sierra Trading Post. I am ordering replacements now after about four years of daily use. That would be about two years per tip but I lost one to a tenacious shopping cart and didn't know it at the time. I would say the tips are a tough plastic rather than rubber. They grip well and may outlast rubber.

    • No. They are sold in the Sierra Trading Post catalog for $6.95. Though I mentioned in a previous post that they seemed like a durable plastic, they are marketed as "rubber tips". Worth the price.

  • “What color is the cane? It says assorted so should I expect the color as shown?”
    Asked by Garden Girl from Rhode Island on 8/1/2015 8:17:17 PM

    • The two I've gotten were like the picture; silver with green striping and the name in white and black tip, shield and strap. If you're using it for home and city you'll want to buy the black rubber tip, which you have to get else where
