I wanted something that helped me walk with a bit of a bad back. I felt too young to be using a walking stick. These fit the bill and I can share them with a friend so that we have one each. We look less like we're falling apart and more like we're serious walkers. I happened to be holding it when I first stood up out of my armchair and found that it was surprisingly helpful for standing up too.
I would advise not to extend it too forcefully as there are 'stop' markers showing where you should extend it to. I was a bit too vigorous and pulled a section off and was scared I'd not be able to get it back on. I managed it and it was still able to be extended to another length and be held in place without any problem. It has a twist grip method to secure the sections of the sticks.
I wasn't sure about the handles as to how comfortable they are but perhaps I just haven't worked out the best way of holding on to them.
Love the colour and detail too.
