This staff works well enough. One thing you have to get used to is that when you pull it to extend the sections they can completely separate, instead of having some kind of stop to prevent it. Otherwise it is a good staff.,I like the wading staff as it is light, has a comfortable grip, and is adjustable. I agree that there should be a rubber tip. I didn't realize it would make as much noise on rocks as it actually does. I also agree that the adjustments are not very smooth and at least for me, the adjustment levers open on their own and also wish it could collapse to an even smaller size. Overall, i like the wading staff and hope it lasts a long time.,This is a fine wading staff, but is missing one thing that would put it over the top in comfort and utility.
It does not come (at least the one I purchased) with a clip or other device to readily attach it to yourself. I solved this by tying a large O-ring to the hand loop, and snapping the O-ring to a heavy duty retractor attached to my vest. Suggest something be added!,I bought this to improve on my Leki Wanderfreud for wading while I fish. The quick release would simplify deploying and storing the wading staff. Right now my Leki has to be turned clockwise and counterclockwise to use. A bit slow and the handle is more for walking but the Black Diamond does double duty quickly and effortlessly. The only drawback is there is no stop when deploying so use care not to lose the ends when opening up. Otherwise it is the same length open and close as the Leki.,To be honest I havent gotten to use it in the water yet but from I can see it seems to be a very good sturdy wading stick. Very nice looking and seems to bea quality wading stick. Will write more when I get the time to use it. The weather here in Va has been a little iffy so far this winter. I will say one thing ORVIS is the tops in fly fishing products.
