Experience More Stability

I gave these as a present to my 73 year old mother last Xmas, who had her second hip replaced last spring. She had previously fallen when walking with her cane, and we are thrilled that she has experienced greater stability when using these walking sticks. Here is what she had to say: I was presented with two Cabela’s X-Treme Performance Gear ™ XPG ™ walking sticks. A couple of observations (so far) that I have noticed.
For someone that is (or might be) unsteady on their feet the walking sticks afford great balance and therefore security. While walking, the walker has two points on the ground – one foot and one walking stick - opposite sides of the body. Another observation is that in using the sticks my stride has lengthened and so have the ligaments and muscles. The walk is also much more energetic (using a cane appears to slows the walker down). I have noticed that some senior citizens (as they get older) shorten their stride and many shuffle, rather than pick up their feet when they walk. [An individual does not necessarily notice that they are not walking heal to toe and until they look at the soles of their shoes (for wear) might not agree that they are not walking optimally.] There is not much arm movement when the walker uses a cane, with the sticks the arms do swing a bit which would help a senior that is not using their arms as much as they could. It seems to me that by promoting the walking sticks for different age groups and for different activities it might encourage seniors to give them a try. I look a bit out of place walking around my neighborhood using the sticks but then I really don’t care. The ligaments are lengthening as is my stride and my body feels great.

Excellent help when hiking

I guided many hunters using these sticks before I tried them myself and wow! what a difference! they are fantastic you suddenly feel like you have 4 wheel drive! At any given time you will have 2 or more points of contact while you are taking a step, and in rough country the increase in stability is like putting yourself on a tripod, you feel like you cant tip over no matter what! Climbing steep hills really put your weight on the wrist straps and push with your arms and suddenly you are 18 again and the hill is not even there anymore. For an old timer with a bad leg and failing vision in one eye from shrapnel, these sticks have increased my stability and mobility 100%. I love them. what I DO NOT LOVE is that the baskets which help hugely in mud and snow easily get lost, I lost one right off the bat, and they are not replaceable! BIG PROBLEM. also, and I can not stress this enough, the tips come off right away, the very first thing you need to do when you pen these is put thread tape on the threads and crank the rubber tip covers on as hard as you can ....maybe glue them on with elmers, or tape them on with electrical tape. because as sure as the sun will rise they will immediately come off....immediately. I can not recommend this stick only because of the impossibility of replacing the baskets and the rubber covers, its a real pain and they need to address it. that said, if you don't care about the baskets and never walk in mud or snow, and don't mind taping up the rubber end caps, then go ahead and get them, once you use hiking sticks you wont ever go without them again.

Comfort Poles

These poles are comfortable and sturdy. the only issue I have had is the tips can come unscrewed and lost if you don't keep a watch on them.

trekking poles

VERY disappointed in the fact that you CANNOT replace the mud baskets. That's the piece that broke on these poles. You can replace carbide tip and the rubber tips, but NOT the baskets?!!! What's up with that???????
