Walking Stick for me
Reviewed by Dr. Jude from Western Oregon on Saturday, September 5, 2015
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 know I'm not being cool about alter-abled image and all that. I'm not perfect. Turns out this offered more than a cane. It has height/length adjustment. It has shock-absorption. It has a safety strap. It's light weight. It could be packed in luggage, though I'm using mine always when out of the house. The cork handle is well-sculpted and forgiving but very firm. I recommend the rubber tips purchased separately. I've even had many compliments and inquiries from other cane users. For me it is better than a cane. I call it "Mr. Stickley"
