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 purchased three Brazos walking sticks earlier this month and I debated on whether or not to pull the trigger on this more expensive tip (versus the Brazos tip) to install on one of the sticks. The three walking sticks are all similar in color and are either oak or hickory but the one with this tip installed looks like it’s in a different league altogether! While the rubber tip has less contact area than the standard, non-metallic tips installed as the default tip for the walking sticks, it doubles the wow factor when you’re seen walking with it. Also, I’m hoping my dad is able to make use of the pointed metal tip when the upper midwest winters come rolling in with their notorious icy spots on the sidewalks and parking lots. The Brazos craftsman that installed the tip (no extra charge) did an exceptional job of fitting and installing. If you order one of these, I would go ahead and order a couple of extra rubber tips to save on future shipping costs. I’m guessing these may wear more quickly than than the standard chair leg type tips that are otherwise standard on walking sticks.
its as described strong tip and hope it will help
Substantial, strong, nothing that will catch, just what I need
the spike is as described
Lee Valley is the best available. However, your price of $56 is way too high, considering that anyone can go to the Lee Valley website and purchase exactly the same product for $22. Your markup is excessive. Too much trouble to return, however.
Nice spike, I like the fact that you can replace the tip if damaged
I regret buying this walking stick! I choose to buy the upper price hickory leather wrap stick! The leather strap was way to short but can be replaced. I thought the leather wrap would look better. My biggest problem is with the hickory stick!!! It was one of the worst looking peices i have ever seen. Just saw today a hickory stick at sportsmans for 29 bucks and was 10 times nicer! I wish i would have just ordered the plain cheaper hickory stick! I will never use this stick! I will say the construction is very good and was shipped out very fast!
The greatest thing about this tip is that it can be modified for the hike of the day. A 4-5 hour hike over dirt roads, use the rubber tip. A 14.5 hour hike "Rim-to-Rim" through the Grand Canyon (yes, I did that) put on the spike. Works great for any kind of day hike.
