Decent, but with flaws
The staff itself works well. Its contoured handle is easy to grip and works well even in pretty heavy water flow. The holster and string, however, have some serious design flaws. The holster almost immediately started to tear next to a seam, which rendered it pretty useless since as soon as you started to take the staff out of it, it would tear more. Also, the string is just tied to the top of the staff, so when you open it, the string occasionally gets caught in the staff as it's trying to assemble, so you'd have to take time to manually fix the issue in order to be able to use the staff. Also, there's so much string that you either have to cut it or shove the extra into the holster, and it occasionally gets snagged, especially when trying to put the staff back into the holster, which in turn, rips it even further. Luckily I had an old staff and used the holster from that, otherwise I wouldn't have lasted 3 days on the river.

Good piece of equipment
I've seen these at other fly shops and retailers for a heck of a lot more but this White River wading stick has worked very well for me. You can spend more but this wading stick is more than adequate for the job and it does it at a good price.

Great Wading Staff
A great wading staff and a terrific value! Easily collapsible and carried in a holster that straps to your wading belt. Very light weight. A must have for rocky river bottoms and high water. You can spend 4-5 times the price at other fly fishing stores.
