  • Great Walking Pole...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Cheap and sturdy and comes with an antishock system that eases the paonding on long treks

    Has 4 sections to sensure easy packing and adjuastable height.

    Very light-weight

    Good foam grip

    The light is a plus for a few dollars extra but see below for more about this.

    Cons:

    The light came DOA with scratches on the plastic lens.

    Reflector was peeling

    Tried my best but couldn't get the light working and gave up I'm not going to ask for a replacement as travelling to and from the local PO is a hassle, not to mention the cost.

    Anti-shock system cannot be locked.

    OtherThoughts:

    I'd recommend the cheaper model without light. To be honest a product like this, with all the bumps that it receives in daily use is bound to fail. If you need a light get a small LED torch as prices have been falling steadily or better, get an LED headlamp.

    Great for short treks and wading across shallow steams while fishing (my main use).

    Bottomline:

    Great pole, especially if the light works but for the price I pay I guess this is acceptable. Don't be turned off though, buy one and if you receive a defect get RMA from DX as I've had positive experiences asking them for replacements.
