Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue23 Brilliant stick
I had to buy this because I'd hurt my knee and left my old stick at home.
It was the only one in the shop but performed wonderfully. The adjustable height means I can pack it small and it is more portable. My mother recently hurt her hip so the stick is on lone to her, and the adjustable height means she can use it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Diana Just what I needed, post hip replacement, walked round the walls of Dubrovnik with its help.
Lightweight, reduces to in-case size, strong.
Early days really as I have only used it on this holiday but it suited my needs and I am sure is going to be very useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JamesD Good handle, good stick
I chose this one because it had a transverse handle. Tried it out in the Cairngorms a couple of weekends ago, and it did just what I wanted it to. Easy to hold when in use and when not in use. Not heavy. Pretty easy to adjust the length, although I didn't fiddle with it often. Useful-sized wrist loop, too. Has the option to put ski-style baskets on the ends, which I used in the snow.
Better than my ice axe for balancing against rocks etc., when not on heavy-duty slopes where the axe is mandatory.
Only drawback was that the length adjuster undid itself once, resulting in the stick suddenly getting shorterthan I expected. But that was not when it had any load on it, and I think I may have knocked it against something to make that happen.
