Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very close to perfect! I love this wading staff! Folds up small, deploys very quickly with one hand. Definitely benefits from some ferrule wax for easy re-folding. If you're REALLY in the muck (think Blacktail Ponds), the lower segment may separate when you try to pull it out. That's just a feature of the foldables, though -- and this one is MUCH more reliable under those condition than other models with single shock cords. Really, my only complaint is that the tip came off at some point during my last wade -- about a week after I bought it. But Orvis took it back without question and sent a replacement. Overall, I consider this an outstanding tool that allows me to wade safely where I may not have dared to tread before.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Find a different wading staff Bought the staff for a fishing vacation. Tip came out on the second use. I purchased through an Orvis approved vendor, who promptly sent me a new one but the concerns I read on here are all valid. Hard to disassemble after using, tip comes out, and belt loop doesn't fit wading belt width. It's a shame I really trust the Orvis brand but this particular product is not up to expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality Replaced this wading staff x2 because tip fell out with minimal use Next I just bought the ripcord model after 3 trips the attachment for your belt tore out-plan not to return BC will be replaced with the same problems When I returned 2nd Sure Step Orvis sent the refund to a CC that I did not have If this is the best quality FF stuff in the world we are in trouble! Long term fan of Orvis but not anymore (quality must be way down)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor features I have had an Orvis Wading Staff for several years. The bungee cord broke and I needed a new one. I ordered one and received it several weeks ago. It is not the same as my old one. The old one had white plastic rings on each section so when you separated the staff to put it away the bungee cords would not scrape on the metal edge. Over the past several years a number of the white guides came loose and were pushed up into the sections and the resulting issue caused the bungee to fray and break. The new staff has no white plastic guides and every time to fold the staff the bungees scrape against the sharp metal edge of the sections. I think I'm going to return the new one and look for a different brand.
