"The Big Stik was superb! I was very impressed how much of a grip it had, both on the slippery
trails but also along the granite boulers we encountered and had to cross, covered with ice and
snow. I was very happy to have had the Big Stik with me because it saved me from several falls
and helped keep me from slipping many times." James T. December/2010
"The only carbon staff with a Lifetime Breakage Warranty"
"The 11" Carbon Section in the Stiks above can be replaced with the Texas Toothpick...

The multi-section BigStik has two 15" Carbon Sections, one 11" Carbon Section (plain or Texas Toothpick), the 8" Aluminum/epoxy Tip (add those up and you get 49 inches). The patented invisible joints cannot collapse or jam. And it's hollow so you can hide things inside. Packs down to only 18" long so it fits inside your backpack and travel luggage (or on your lap in a restaurant).
The Texas Toothpick is shipped sheathed inside the 8" Aluminum Tip, but will plug into any carbon section located anywhere along the shaft. With the Texas Toothpick section located at the bottom, just pull off the Aluminum Tip and you can stick the Toothpick into soft ground to make a self-standing monopod for your camera. Or have an instant spear for self defense.
All sections are hollow, so airport security can see right through. And you won't be treated like a old man (or woman) when you walk with this high-tech irridescent black carbon staff. Ideal for travelers with a mixed urban and outdoor itinerary. The 8" and 14" aluminum tips have the bottome filled with a special glass/epoxy alloy that grips rocks better than carbide tips. The Slide/Lock Hand Strap allows instant height adjustment for rugged trails

"Bruce, how right you were! Just got back from Zion and my REI walking stick felt
unstable and wobbly. I am immediately re-ordering your Big Stik...I had no idea
how superior it really is." Ed S. 4/7/12
Hiking Staff, Shelter Pole, City Staff, Camera Monopod, Gun Rest, Water Pipe, and more...
Big - Fat - Strong - but Light! All other poles are heavier or they break. This is the only carbon hiking pole with a breakage warranty. Why carry skinny hiking poles that slip, jam, bend, and break? ... and weigh more than the Big Stik! The Big Stik is a fat 21mm (13/16 inch) diameter carbon tube that has the comfortable hand feel of a wood hiking staff (not the slick cold touch of aluminum tubing). But the Big Stik is one fifth the weight of oak and even stronger. Vault across streams with no fear.
Instant Height Adjustment -- Change the height of your Big Stik every few seconds on rocky up and down trail sections. The Slide/Lock Strap uses a Prussik knot that slides easily when you push up or down right on the knot, but grips instantly and never slips with downward pressure on the strap. The strap also makes a great rifle rest for hunters.
Texas Toothpick -- The Big Stik is also your Trail Defense System. The T-9 aluminum Texas Toothpick cannot compete with your traditional steel knife, but is sharp enough to leave a big hole in any creature unwise enough to attack you. Put the Texas Toothpick section as the bottom segment to make a spear or stick it into soft ground to make a 'tripod' for your camera. You can assemble your Big Stik with the Sections in any order you like.
Aluminum Tips -- The three different lengths of aluminum bottom tips are anodized T-9 aluminum with the lower end filled with epoxy/glass that sticks on rocks better than carbide. And our wide aluminum tips do not damage tree roots and trails like pointy carbide tips do (not to mention the Big Stik cannot poke a hole into your foot!) The BigStik+ includes a rubber crutch tip for quiet walking on pavement or in buildings. Pull of the Tip and you'll see all the carbon sections are hollow... the Big Stik becomes a big drinking straw or a pipe to collect water from difficult seeps.
Shelter Pole -- The different lengths of the carbon sections and aluminum tips allow you to build a pole of almost any length. The joints do not wiggle at all and cannot slip and collapse.
Lifetime Guarantee -- You get a lifetime guarantee against joint failure or breakage (other carbon poles have no breakage warranty). And there is no unreliable locking mechanism to jam or collapse just when you need it to stop that fall.
"Just got back from a little trip to the Lake District, and I LOVED the Stik. You'll notice an order for a 11" extension, I just need a little more length on the pole, particularly for downhill. The camera cap worked nicely for my pocket camcorder. Thanks for a great product!" Phil T. June/2009
