Great As a Younger Person With Mobility Troubles
on 8 August 2015
I really love this stick and am complemented on it a lot. Its bright and colourful and as a 26 year old I feel more confident using this in public than a grey or brown one.
The adjustable height is varied and has a twist mechanism to ensure the adjusted height you choose won't slip, which is reassuring. It folds with ease and is secured with a colour matching clip, it can be neatly placed in a handbag etc. I use it continuously so this feature doesn't help me. On days where my arms or hands were weak, I would find it a bit tricky to fold up and down.
The rubber bit at the bottom has been well used since purchase, but it still in great condition and provides good grip. The plastic handle is a bit uncomfortable but the ergonomic designed handle shape makes up for this.
It isn't designed to take all your weight, I think the weight limit is 16 stone or something, but on days where I need it to take more weight it does so fine, the creaking at the joins can be off putting but it hasn't collapsed on me yet lol. If you are looking for a stick to regularly lean heavily on this one is not for you.
Great value for money, I use it all the time inside and outside the house. Simple packaging but comes with diagramed instructions on how to use your stick most effectively. Would have been 5 stars if it had a better material handle. Go buy it, its great.
