LifeTime Breakage Warranty. Weighs 10 ounces (285gm) The perfect staff for long-haul hikers because it won't fail you in the middle of nowhere. Or, if you are a big guy with bad knees walking in the city, you can lean on it with your full weight. The patented joints have no wiggle, never get loose, and are actually stronger than the shaft. You get one 11" and two 15" Carbon Sections, the 9" Aluminum Tip with epoxy/glass fill that will last 2,000 trail miles plus a rubber tip for urban walking. Includes the Slide/Lock Hand Strap and the rubber top plug with Camera Mount bolt (for small point & shoot cameras). Also the ideal walking stick for travelers with a mixed urban and outdoor itinerary.
Frank Carney, 8-11-2014 -- "If you ever need someone to praise your equipment, Iím a fan. Attached is a picture of me with your hiking poles on my recent hike of the kora circumambulating Mt. Kawa Kharpo in Tibet. Over a 100 miles of the trek I was climbing up and down between 6,000 and 15,000 feet. The trails were often very steep both on the up and down sides of the mountain as we hiked over the peaks. Without the hiking poles I'm not sure I could have succeeded on that trek. You will also see with your mount I have my GoPro mounted on the hiking sticks to make picture taking even easier. I also use your mount with my Six Moon Designs Gatewood Cape tarptent that converts the hiking poles into my tent pole and saves the weight of having to carry a separate tent pole."
Want to carry less food and not get hungry?... hike with ONE BigStik. Want to burn more calories?... then walk with a pair of traditional hiking poles: In the Feb 19, 2013 issue of www.gizmag.com: "According to the American Nordic Walking Association walking with two poles burns more that 40 percent more calories per hour and works more muscles than normal walking." Of course, if your goal is to lose weight, buy two BigStiks. If you are a long distance hiker, then use one BigStik and, on easy trail sections, swing it horizontally in your hand for the most efficient natural stride... allowing you to carry less food weight.
"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 BigStik...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 BigStik! The BigStik 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 BigStik is one fifth the weight of oak and even stronger. Vault across streams with no fear. Packs down to only 18" long so it fits inside your backpack and travel luggage (or on your lap in a restaurant).
Instant Height Adjustment -- Change the height of your BigStik 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 BigStik 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 monopod for your camera. You can assemble your BigStik with the Sections in any order you like.
Aluminum Tips -- The aluminum bottom tips are anodized T-9 aluminum with the lower end filled with epoxy/glass that sticks on rocks better than carbide and lasts 2,000+ miles. And the wide aluminum tips do not damage tree roots and trails like the sharp carbide tips. The rubber crutch tip makes for quiet walking on pavement or in buildings. Pull off the Tip and you'll see all the carbon sections are hollow... airport security can see right through. The BigStik 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 patented 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
