I bought the eight-tube package and wanted to use this on my next camping trip to the mountains. However, I had made up my mind to test each and every feature first so with my friend we tested this thoroughly. When we opened the package we could feel the sturdiness and strong material used in the built. Then we attached each of these with the attachments given. It looked really good and we managed to test if it could actually hold our weight. It did. It has definitely exceeded my expectations and I have recommended my friends to order one for themselves. The more the merrier. Check out the images to see the test.
Purchased this to use on our daily walks. We live in an area being regentrified with lots of stray dogs and lots of "action." This stick is amazing. I can carry it alone as one piece or detach it and hand my wife one piece if we're confronted with a dangerous situation. The stick assembles and disassembles within seconds. It's not very lightweight, but it's strong, solid quality and what is expected for all of those moving pieces. We like it so much, we're thinking of getting more and gifting them to relatives for Christmas.
