I bought it because I needed a temporary cane for medical reasons, and I wanted something that I could use later for bank fishing -- getting down and up slopes by the water.It's light and balanced for easy maneuvering. I tightened the screws and gave in the weight test to be sure it would not slip -- perfect. The tip flexed as advertised and stayed solid.As advertised it's fast to and secure in length adjustments, and stylish. I intend to take it to sporting events and concerts during my rehabilitation -- stylish. Sure to catch fashion attention from all chicks -- and some older :)I am confident in my steps with this cane. The rubber tip is well designed -- rounded end with a surprising ease in turning corners. Very durable rubber.I love it -- it's a work of art.
I bought this because I needed a daily cane until October 2014 (medical reasons), and I wanted something useful after my condition healed (blood clots).It takes pressure off my left leg, easy to handle, light, sure bet support in case of a stumble. It gives me confidence when I'm walking -- actually fun to use. It's easy and fast to adjust. The rubber spike cover at the end of the cane is excellent! It's durable and shaped perfectly for any angle of turn when walking.I intend to use this while bank fishing: The length will be longer to get up and down hill slopes -- the bottom extension on the handle is perfect.for that purpose.I put a lot of pressure on it when I received it to be sure it would hold me up -- I needed to tighten the two nuts -- it was easy. The flex tip bent with a lot of pressure, but gave no indication of failing -- I'm very satisfied.Oh, It's fashionable. I intend to take it to some classical music concerts.
