Fantastic Cane – Trekking and Nordic Walking Pole with 9-LED Flashlight (Black) Reviews

posted by lecale on 09/20/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Fully adjustable height. Shock gives the cane user enough "bounce" to reduce the impact on the leg on the side of the body you are using the cane. GREAT as a cane, sporty look.
Cons:
Batteries were dead/corroded on arrival. You will need Cell Battery AG13 LR44 (50-Pack) or similar to get the light to work. 1 of 9 LEDs dead on arrival. Light is still bright an functional. You need to spend time learning to adjust it propery so the shock does not rattle, etc.
Other:
I bought this for my boyfriend, who has a bad hip. He was not impressed by the look of it on the DX site but now that he has one in his hand, he LOVES it and in walking around town with it, he has had many inquiries on where he picked it up. Bought some more for our optometrist (see, not cheap looking) and another friend.
Bottomline:
A great, good-looking cane with a very functional and handy flashlight built in. Great price.
