Needed a cane, but canes were too short!
About Me Casual/ Recreational
Comments about LEKI Sierra Anti-Shock Pole (single):
I am an adult with Muscular Dystrophy(FSHD), still able to walk, but not without some challenges. I have tried a number of canes & walking sticks, but this one lets me adjust the hieght, is light wieght, has an adjustable wrist strap which gives me additional leverage, & has a rounded top which is comfortable to lean on to rest. This can be especially helpful if I get stuck waiting in a long line. TSA does not hassel me about taking it on board the plane, & I'm able to store it in the over-head compartment fully extended. When walking, I am able to balance more fully to prevent falls. I'm careful where I store it when it is not in use, as people like to play with it and are curious with the anti-shock system. If this stick is NOT put in guarded place or position when not in use, people could accidentally trip over it or step on it and end up bending it (this is why I only gave it 4 stars). After purchasing my first pole, I got another one to keep in my car permanantly so I'd never be without one. I get a lot of compliments, and people want to know where they can get themselves one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent trekking pole
from Waco, TX
I bought one of these poles last December because it had a camera mount under the top knob. The pole works great and I really like the slight compression it gives when I walk/hike. I liked it so much that I bought this one so I would have a matched pair for stick walking which my wife and I just began doing. Comfortable, lightweight and performs consistently and exactly as expected.
Good travel stick, light duty
from Las Vegas, Nevada
About Me Military/Law Enforcement
This walking staff is just OK. Not exceptionally robust. A good walking stick, I don't know if I would depend on it for mountain walking. It collapses neatly which would make it easy to pack for an airplane trip. I have the TRACKS Sherlock hiking staff which is very robust and will withstand almost all conditions. It depends upon what your needs are. I would not trust the Leki to support my 160 lbs going down a steep incline.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
