Excerpt: I have a severe back problem and need to use a walking stick to get around. This product was ideal for me. It acts as a prefect walking stick, even includes a strap. I unscrewed the head and walked throughout the Miramar Airshow. With the head on I used it with a Canon 100-400mm zoom.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Walking Stick
Excerpt: Carbon fiber is lighter than aluminum and works without gloves in cold weather; also dampens vibration better than aluminum. I like it very much and only wish it had a tripod base about 1 foot tall to help me and my camera stay upright.
