Technical Details


Product Description

In addition to a comfortable contoured foam grip, the Sherlock staff has a foam sheath that encases the upper half of the staff. Its length adjusts every 1-1/4 in (3 cm) with a sure locking button depressed through the outer foam sheath. It has an adjustable Wedge Lock wrist loop, a removable walnut knob with a universal camera mount, and a spike tip beneath a removable rubber foot. Tracks walking staffs and trekking poles help you walk smarter. They reduce the impact of each step you take so that weight which is normally carried by your lower body is transferred to your arms and torso, lessening the stress on your legs by 5 10 pounds or more. This means you get more power and traction going uphill, and save your knees and ankles when coming back down. All Tracks staffs are hand-built with high-strength, lightweight anodized aluminum tubing. They are available as single walking staffs and paired trekking poles. Their soft foam handgrip stays comfortable hour after hour, while their adjustable wrist straps aid transfer of weight when walking.

I've used various trekking and ski poles and this is still my favorite.
Sailorman
The bottom of the stick has a rubber cap, which easily comes off to reveal a spike that is very handy on ice.
NHBigfoot
It may be a big chunk of money for a stick, but it's the best stick you'll find in my opinion.

I am not a hiker-- it is only be the grace of God and my own stubbornness that after a half-dozen spine surgeries and three knee surgeries I continue to be a walker and not confined to a wheelchair (as I was told I should be almost a decade ago). However, I've gotten far more use out of my Tracks Staffs than I ever would have as a weekend hiker.

I bought my first Tracks Sherlock Staff in 2001, and have been walking and leaning on one, daily, for over a decade. It is far better than a cane for anyone who needs assistance either with walking or balance-- its height and strap mean that, while walking, the user can divide the weight between his/her hand and wrist, and at a better height than a cane; when standing still (which is worse than walking in my case) the staff can be thrust out to the front and leaned on it as though it and the legs formed a tripod, taking much of the weight from the back. Despite being disabled/retired from working as an Anglican priest, I was able to volunteer on Sunday mornings for four years, celebrating the Eucharist and preaching in Portugal, leaning on the staff for support-- a mere cane would have left me in a chair in front of the TV, eating bon-bons (and I don't even own a TV!). I also was able to use it as a camera monopod without difficulty (although as with all monopods it's better propped against a wall for steadiness); the Tracks Sherlock Staff Monopod Extension accessory makes it better still, by adding some 30 cm of height.

I have over the years worn out at least four of the "feet", which are inexpensive to replace, and finally bought a second Tracks Sherlock Staff when the first became to battered-looking for church use.

I had one like this one and lost it. This one is better though so except for paying out money it was lucky that I lost the first one. You can make this a walking staff by extending it all the way out, or a cane by making it short, or any length in between. It is also improved from the first one I had. The handle is tighter (the foam covering on the first one slipped so that the metal stick showed for about the top 2"), and is a better gripping surface as well. It is easy to unscrew the walnut cap and attach a camera, which makes for much steadier closeups when you are out in the woods and want a picture of flora or fauna. The bottom of the stick has a rubber cap, which easily comes off to reveal a spike that is very handy on ice. All in all, a great, versatile, quality walking stick/cane for just about anyone.

I've had my Sherlock Staff for about 10 years... That is until I stupidly lost it about a month ago on a short geocaching outing. Not a cheap thing to lose! I'm a 40 year veteran scouter and avid hiker. I consider my staff is a last defense against bears, pigs and other creepies (luckily haven't had to try it out). So I love the stout, hardened spike on the end - good on ice too but keep an eye on it for several years until the threads get good and dirty - the tipe can come unscrewed and lost by accident. The adjustment mechanism has never failed, even when pole vaulting creeks or mud with a full pack on, although I don't put an angled full weight on it. I've taken mine hundreds of miles on the Appalachian trail and other less famous tracks and my favorite part of the staff is that it's solidly built. The camera mount works great for a monopod and although I didn't think I'd use it the wrist strap is an excellent addition and works well with gloves on. I'm all ultra-light with most everything but I need the balance of a staff that's the right heft and this one is perfect for me. It may be a big chunk of money for a stick, but it's the best stick you'll find in my opinion. Happy trails!

Excellent stick. Replaces an older, identical stick that has been misplaced or lost. It was for my wife and she loves it. Quick adjustment and includes camera attach bolt in handle and metal point at the bottom for great grip and stability.

I've used this staff for 20 years maybe more and it's still going strong. I use from Fall through Spring when our NH trails are slippery from wet leaves, ice and mud or some combination of all three. It's very strong I can put all my weight on it and it neither folds nor collapses. I like the push button adjustments very solid and positive. I did scribe a line lengthwise on the sliding part to make it easier to line up the holes and circumfrentially at my normal height adjustment for convenience.
I've used various trekking and ski poles and this is still my favorite. Several years ago i lost my Sherlock on the trail and immediatly ordered a replacement. Miraculously several weeks later I found my old comapanion. Now I have two.

I'm a mountaineer..and have Black Diamond poles - professional high end type. I bought this staff for my 500 mile walk along the Camino de Santiago. From using it around the house - pre-trip...it's all it's cracked up to be, but having said that...I'll let you know after I finish the 500 miles how it w/stood the test of time.

This walking staff is very sturdy, well-made and lightweight. I use it outdoors when walking over uneven hilly terrain and am very satisfied and happy with it.
