Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift for all anglers I never used a wading staff except for the occasional stick found along a fast creek. My fellow anglers gave me one for the many decades of circling the sun mostly as a poke (no pun intended) at my age. It has worked great and at times a much needed accessory . I have been very pleased and have purchased 2 more for gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product At home I normally use a piece of blackthorn with a antler handle and have done for 30 years. Its a bit heavy though to take on a plane and a recent trip to the Alps where I knew I would need a staff made me hunt out this Orvis product. I can recommend it as a good wading staff it packs up well and sits on your belt when not in use and when needed is easy to assemble. It took me a while to realise first time of using that you had to pull hard on the cord until a mettle bead appears to lock the sections in place. It would be good if this was made clear with some instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Wading Staff This staff feels sturdy when extended and tucks away nicely when not in use. The built in retractable cord is a nice feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality Compact and out of the way until you need it. Quick and easy to get out of the sheath and assemble for use. Appears to be made of superior quality and works like a dream. You get what you pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Hate Relationship While this staff performs its job as advertised, I have concerns about its long term durability. The obvious weak points are the retractor to secure it to my belt and the tip. I've lost multiple tips on rivers around the world. Additionally, with one big fall, I bent the the staff 45 degrees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Solution Folding staff solves a lot of issues the wife had with a fixed staff made from a recycled cross country ski pole. It would be a five star item if it didn't require so much effort to seat the ball in the socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Used in river and rocky streams. Light weight but very strong construction to support full weight bearing pressure.
