Nice First Walking Sticks

Verified Buyer Reviewed by P.J.R. from Portland, OR on Friday, July 21, 2017
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.
