    Should have bought sooner! - 10/30/2015

    Used a friend's staff of this model to wade the St. Joe in Idaho. Found it very helpful and thought I need to get one someday. A few days later while wading the Gallatin in Montana, without a staff, I badly rolled an ankle. The stability of a wading staff would have eliminated or minimized that injury. Bought the staff at the first opportunity after that.

    Good except for tip - 3/8/2015

    After less than a year I lost the tip either in-stream or stream side. The tip should be pinned. Are tips available?

    This is an excellent wading aid, especially for an older wading fisherman like me. It has already prevented some nasty falls in a rocky stream. It's light weight but sturdy construction is reassuring. I will never go in any stream without it.

    Sturdy and convenient wading staff - 10/1/2014

    The staff is incredibly sturdy which inspires confidence when you are waist high in fast water. It sits comfortably on my hip when not in use. The only criticism is that it is sometimes hard to separate the sections.

    Wading Staff Falls Short - 6/23/2014
    By: from Pennsylvania

    Had to replace a wading staff as I left my original streamside. This was the only one available at the fly shop and a little pricey. Used on several trips and had a hard time dissembling it to place in car. On my last trip the tip of the staff separated from the tube and I had to pound the tube and the tip to get back in. The tip is still loose and I suspect will eventually come off the end again. Really hoping for better construction for the price.

    Good wading staff provided you do two things: Put parrafin wax on the joints to lessen sticking Store the wading staff extended to prevent the cords from stretching.
