Rating: rated 2.5 of 5 stars
Source: received it as a personal gift


I love the hiking stick, but need different gripper for the top. My hand doesn't fit. Is there a regular gripper handle that I can replace the cork round one?


  • Like the hiker stick


  • Can't find different tops to replce cork round one

Need a different top to grip.


Hi Teenann. I sugest contacting REI directly for help. If they can't switch the grip they may be able to offer a replacement pole:

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

This telescoping, super-lightweight aluminum hiking staff features internal springs to absorb shock and protect your joints. Antishock springs can be turned on and off with a twist of the pole-use the extra cushion for going downhill; set it rigid for support uphill. Shocklight springs are located inside the inner shaft; thus, are quieter and smoother than other pole springs. Foam grip and wide, padded wrist loop ensure a comfortable and secure hold; cork knob unscrews to create a monopod camera mount. Small-diameter trekking basket keeps the durable carbide tip from sinking into soft dirt and sand, yet resists catching in underbrush. The three-section shaft compacts small enough to strap to a daypack. Measures 51 inches open and 28.5 inches closed; grip length is 8 inches. Sells as a single staff.
