Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Sometimes-Urban Jane from Pacific on Tuesday, May 15, 2018Pro: Speed-lock (YouTube - to learn how to adjust it, for safety.)
Pro: Shape of grip-handle
Pro: Versatility to use at walking-stick height or collapse to cane-height of lower.
Con: It is NOT the anti-shock version. (Which is why I returned it.)
I've used earlier model of this for several years.
When this arrived, and didn't seem to be the b familiar anti-shock, I contacted STP & LEKI. LEKI helped me understand that THIS one is NOT anti-shock, but there is another one (with this grip) now with both anti-shock and speed-lock. LEKI advised that if I'm already accustomed to the anti-shock and if it works for me (people have varying preferences) - to not keep this.
disappointed that STP hasn't corrected info in the description, especially add they had many interactions with me, in resolving the anti-shock issue.
If you don't need/want anti-shock, it's 4.5 stars. Small deduction because handle can break (but repairable).
Now, STP has similar+gripped Kompetdell - with anti-shock, but without the free-kick (& need to get own rubber tip, if for urban use).
Hope this helps.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Simon_W from Mid-Michigan on Monday, April 30, 2018I use this for tootling about town, and it works very well. The speed locks hold without slippage and the light weight is a fun novelty. The grip is comfortable, fills the hand, and is non-slip. I am suspicious the STP sent me a returned cane, since it came without any packaging. Just a bare cane in the box. But it was still in good cosmetic condition, so no big concerns. Kind of pricey, even on clearance. But since I am disabled and require a cane, this was a necessary purchase.
Reviewed by Barry from Southeast PA near Philly on Saturday, March 3, 2018I use this for around town, and around the woods and fields when I go out in nature. Excellent design, very comfortable handle! I also have the Komperdell with cork handle, and I find this one more comfortable, because it is a little wider, with a palm swell that fits your hand better. If you have tiny hands, maybe the Komperdell would be better. But this one with the speed locks is really more convenient and little easier to change heights (or collapse if you need it). It doesn't get small enough to put in luggage, but it helps sometimes in stores and places where you have a small cart.
Anyway, highly recommended!
