Replacement Metal Spike for the Lee Valley Spike
To be sure, determining the right size walking stick or can be a subjective art form. What feels right for one person may feel horrible for another. However, with almost two decades of experience in making handcrafted, wooden walking sticks and canes, you can be sure that we have some opinions on the matter!
Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.
Again, let me reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. For people needing step-by-step support, it’s best to consult your doctor or another medical professional about your exact sizing needs.
I've hiked for a decade with metal poles of all sorts. Most are substantially lighter than the Brazos Stick, but none comes close in beauty and cool factor. Same can't be said for the spike. Constantly comes loose. Lost one, now I'll have to purchase a replacement. Finally, metal used is too soft for consistent use on rocky terrain.
Great sticks and accessories. Everything with Brazos is amazingly easy. Just one suggestion for these spikes. They tend to come loose and fall off during hikes, especially in rough rocky country. I use a lock-nut to help keep them on. These help, but they still come off sometime, after several years. Despite this minor issue, we have lots of their sticks, love 'em, rarely hike without 'em.
Metal Spike fits the shaft precisely and functions as described. Ordering was quick, painless and delivery was free!
