great walking stick for a tall guy
I bought mine 6 months ago and have never regreted it. It feels like an extension of my arm when hiking. It's lite, tall enough for me, and can take some weight when I need it. I don't collapse it, so I can not vouch for it's clamps after repeated use, but, the clamps are strong. It makes a great support for cameras and binoculars. It also is good for fending off dogs that aren't under their owner's control and want to get upclose and personal. Woof...
More than a Walking Stick
Photographs and surveys are important to my work as an inspector of large dams located in remote places. This piece of equipment provides the light weight rugged and compact requirements for mounting an electronic camera, brunton compass or scope and gathering the information necessary to make the world safe from the hazards presented by these behemoths.
brunton's internal locks are better than komperdell's, but they apparently do not wear well. camLocks would be better.
I do not Go Hiking without it.
