I have various disabilities and am unable to walk any sort of distance without stopping and resting. I have owned this stick for only a few days but have found it brilliant, it does everything I wanted, allows me to "sit" and rest until the pain dies down and off I go again. The down sides, well to be honest I do have two gripes, there is not an adjustment hole for the ideal walking or sitting height for me, something which will be resolved tomorrow when a hole is drilled at my ideal height, and there is not a rubber ferrule for the spike for use on smooth surfaces. Yes you should be planting the stick in soft ground but I am usually in town, the seat still works fine but I would feel happier knowing it could not slip, and all my other walking sticks have a rubber ferrule for this purpose. Hopefully I will resolve this issue too and end up completely happy.
From a supply point of view, it arrived next day, securley packaged so 100% here too.

This is a very sturdy shooting stick made of heavy gauge aluminium with a leather folding seat. There is a folding disc at the bottom of the stick to stop the spike going too far into the ground. The stick is adjustable for length, using a bolt with a knurled knob that screws into holes on the sliding part of the stick to lock it to the required length. The holes are about 4 cms apart, which seems a fairly coarse adjustment, but it actually works out fine in use.

It can be quite tricky to find the hole to screw the locking bolt into, and care needs to be taken not to spoil the stick by attempting to tighten the bolt into the wrong point.

Having just had a replacement Hip, I purchased a Polo Shooting stick to go the Dorset Steam Fair. With the Polo I was able to enjoy fully the different events and
rest at the same time. Would not be without it now. First class product, but, could do with a ring to put a strap on. ( I did it myself and it works well. Brilliant walking stick as well)

An excellent stick for the price, only problem is the ground plate is a little small for very muddy ground and sinks-in too far.

If you wish to look pretty and somebody else is paying, you can spend way over £100 on a fancy model. But if you want a serviceable model at good value the this is for you. Good leather seat and adjustable aluminium strut with more than adequate strength. Prompt delivery.

Great. Just what I needed. Fell off it the first time I used it but after a few initial skirmishes got quite used to it.A useful walking stick too.

Received this stick today. The stick is in a ruff and ready state the finish is very poor workmanship. Ruff edges file marks etc. The leather is poor is poor quality too. I will rework it and put the faults right on it because I can But don't buy this product thinking it's very good quality it isn't. I guess at the end of the Day you get what you pay for!

I was very disappointed by the quality. Can't be bothered to return it, but I will remove the burrs around the holes and make a bush to stop the stick from wobbling when sat upon. Very nasty engineering!!!

I have purchased this for my husband, who loves to walk, but needs to rest regularly. This is a 'must have' for him!

The item was delivered quickly and was of good quality. The price was for this item was I consider to be fair and I feel that I have had a reasonable deal. I would certainly buy another one if required. Three points that together take one star away. One, the adjustment screw was very stiff and it was hard to screw in and out. I had to use a pair of pliers. Two, the seat was a little small for my behind and as such sitting for any length of time would be uncomfortable. I'm sixteen stone an 5 foot 10 inches tall. Three, the stick when being used as a walking stick is not very comfortable in my hand, a little more padding on the handle would be nice. I use the seat to help when out walking with my arthritic hip, allowing me to sit for five minutes of relief time before I start walking again. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and it does exactly what I wanted it for at a reasonable price.
