Price Paid: $69.97
A nice light-weight hiking pole that collapses to a compact size. However, I bought it mainly for the "camera mount system" and that's a big disappointment. To get to the camera mount you have to "screw" off the foam grip, which is very difficult since it's not threaded. It's just a foam grip that slides tightly into place. Taking it off is frustrating and it takes too long -- not handy if you are hiking in the wild and quickly want to set up to take some wildlife photos.
