Our spike ferrule is a metal spike that's perfect a perfect grip for walking through rugged terrain. The spike is permanently attached to the bottom of your staff.
This is just right for the outings I go on.
If you hike in loose soil or rocky conditions this is the tip to buy. It adds stability and peace of mind to your hike.
I bought this for my mom-she walks in neighborhood. The spike is good size! Will not only grip the ice/snow but also protect her from approaching unwanted dogs.
