Lightweight slim profile aluminum wading staff for reduced water resistance.
The 4-section design locks firmly in place with a sliding collar, so the staff cannot collapse even if the rubber cap is caught between rocks. Remove the "silent wading" rubber cap and a hardened steel tip is exposed for extra grip and this staff comes with an optional screw-on "tip-cup" to spread the load in soft sand, mud, or snow. Ergonomic rubber handle for comfort and positive grip, with an adjustable wrist strap and detachable elasticated lanyard. Packs down into a neat neoprene belt pouch.
- Length when folded: 15"
- Length when extended: 55"
- Staff weight: 340 grams / 12 ounces
At first I was going to return it, since it seemed so loose. Called customer service and there is a sleeve right of the handle that has to come down. Looks fine now....won't know until next year. Thank you
I just returned from a couple of days using the wading staff for the first time on Oregon's Rogue River. When I purchased the staff I was a bit skeptical as it was less than half the price of a well known competitor's staff which I've had to return twice when the locking button failed to line up. I can report that the Snowbee staff is terrific - reliably strong, comfortable handle, nice to have the option of the carbide tip or rubber tip. It is quite long - I'm well over 6' tall and its about right for me - but it looks simple to shorten using a hacksaw and moving the tip. All in all, a really great staff at a down to earth price.
Folding staff seems great and has performed excellently on the water, but the storage belt lash tore on the first use.
