FS: Riverstick Custom-machined Wading Staffs

Common complaints with most folding wading staffs are that they get stuck, vibrate in the current, or wear out…Not this one…Having built and sold several 100 staffs over the past 3 years, I believe my Riverstick has proven to be the worlds’ strongest and most practical folding wading staff on the market.
The heart of the staff is the extremely durable, heavy-guage 6061 marine-grade aluminum tubing and machined inserts. A unique practical feature of the staff is that all other components: the grip, rubber tips and bungee cord are easily found in most bike shop/hardware stores, This allows the staff to be totally self-maintainable, and virtually able to withstand a lifetime of use.
My logic in using the included hammer loop as the holster is that they have been used, unchanged, to carry hammers for over 100 years...You will never see a hammer carried in a neoprene, or nylon, sock...They have proven to be the perfect holster, allowing the staff to be easily deployed, or replaced, with one hand.
The staff comes with a nylon wrist strap and stainless ring just below the grip for clipping onto a retractor to let it hang extended. At 1 lb 10 ozs, it is solid, and built to last.

I build each staff to your preferred length, or can recommend a length to suit your height.
Rule of thumb for height/length: 5’5” - 5’7” = 51”, 5'8" - 5'10" = 52", 5'11" - 6' 2" = 53", 6'3" - 6'5"= 54-56". A good measure is to top of waders with boots on.

Price is $95 + $20 (shipping in NA) = $115 usd total.

Please pm for further information.

Very nice! Told myself (and my wife) that I would get a wading staff when I turned 60. Since that happened this morning, the post offering these staffs was very timely and I ordered one.
