Nice sturdy stick
by SoCal Hiker and Prospector -
The length was perfect for me (I'm 6'). It's very durable. I've used it to cross roaring streams putting my body weight on the stick, and it held up fine. The reason I went with a full length stick, instead of those portable high tech walking sticks is I feel the length is beneficial when hiking on inclines in mountainous rocky territory. Also, I've lost sticks crossing rivers where I end up with just the handle, because the currents ripped the stick portion right out. And if you are assisting others with your stick, I've had collapsable sticks come apart, which isn't that great safety wise.Because this is a more natural wood, there was a slight bend halfway down my stick. So far, it doesn't seem to cause any issues with stability or structural integrity. Oddly, it's at the perfect distance on the stick, so that it balances at the bend.The other issues I had with the stick is that it did not come with a hiking point. I had to get a walking stick hardware kit to put at the end. Rockler sells one, and I used the medium sized. I had to sand the tip a bit to make the hardware kit to fit. But the stick is 100x better with one.The other issue I had is that the rubber tip that came with the stick is more of a furniture bottom. The stick is very thick at the bottom, about 1", might taper down to 3/4". But I found that the rubber tip that came with the stick was not suited for hiking on rocky surfaces. It would work fine if you were walking on even surfaces like a sidewalk or in the house. But the tip kept slipping on rocks when I put pressure at slight angles. And because of the thick nature of the stick, most hiking rubber tips will not fit. Which is why I bought the hardware kit so that I could get a hiking tip to fit on it.So for hikers, especially those that hike inclines, rocky terrain, or off terrain. I would strongly recommend you get a hardware kit to put on this stick.
Tall enough for a tall man

Bought this for my dad for Christmas. He's a little over 6 ft tall and a rather large man. He was so happy the taller walking stick I ordered was an adequate height for him and sturdy enough to feel safe.
You can get what you want, when you want it and How much you want to spend.

What I liked about the brazos walking stick is quite simple. I had one that I bought online 12 years ago from the manufacturer in Waco Tx.. I took it out of storage to use as it was time to get my left knee replaced and I was not about to use a walker. However it was stolen in a restaurant and I needed it to move about. I scoured the internet to find them and then the bad news. I had to pay an extra12 dollars shipping and it would take 109 business days. But then I saw at Amazon the same one I wanted for a total of ovér 15 dollars cheaper. And I had it the next morning to go with my coffee. I believe the answer I simple. What I wanted.. when I wanted it and how much I wanted to pay. I am still waiting for surgery but I still have my stick.
