This is an excellent product. I've used it once and was very pleased. It is is easy to extend and collapse, and is extremely sturdy. It provided great stability while wading in fast moving water. This staff was recommended to me by my brother and brother-in-law, both avid fly fishers. They were absolutely right--I never want to be wading again without it.
