Ratings & Reviews
Well, I bought this staff last year, and first off the neoprene sheath is not very steady, flops around a lot. On my second fishing trip the locking mechanism failed to work any more. Option was to send it in for repair with 3 or 4 weeks waiting for it to return.
Then, perhaps in conjunction with the locking, the folding system became dfficult to extend to re fold it. Only option was to set it up before entering the water and let it drag behind all day.
Lastly, the doggone tip unscrewed itself. I called in, a rubber replacement was all they had , for 20 plus dollars plus shipping. Nope, no.
