Size Name: 56 inch
I have purchased and used 3 different shock-corded wading staffs including an inexpensive one from Cabelas, a Folstaff and the Springbrook all-graphite (actually made by TFO). All the shock corded staffs have the same advantages - they collapse into very short sections and are instantly available for one-handed use (hopefully BEFORE you start to fall), and the same disadvantages - when they get stuck in the bottom in rocks or silt they pull apart (unfortunately this is usually when you really need them immediately!), a section or two will often get stuck together and you cannot fold down the staff, and they all fill up with water. Also most folding staffs need to be 3/4" in diameter for strength, which can make pushing upstream in fast water a real workout (especially when filled with water). The Springbrook is really bad about filling with water and not draining. Finally all of these staffs have cords for attaching to your vest that tend to dangle and get caught in gear (or on fish) or require extra time to wrap around the folded staff.

I bought the Simms wading staff since it had a new concept - the rod uses a vinyl coated steel cable to connect the sections and the rod LOCKS in the open position, with all sections locked together in place. The Simms will not come apart if you get it stuck in the bottom or between rocks. The Simms is also a little thinner (only 5/8" thick), and along with the molded foam grip this makes it a lot easier to push against fast water. The Simms comes with a retractor so there are no dangling cords to tangle with fish.

The fact that this staff quickly locks and the pieces do come apart when you pull up on the handle allowed me to quickly deploy it and use it to recover from a fall in a fast moving Arizona river. Well made.

I looked at the Simms wading staff for purchase at a fishing show last week. There are two serious deficiencies:

1. You have to snap the retaining pin into place to assemble and make the staff ridged. When you are in deep and raging water and quickly need a staff to support you, how are you going to hold your rod, keep your balance and get this staff put together in less than 5 seconds. My Folstaf is bent, after 9 years of very hard use. That is why I consider the Simms staff. But, after having survived bad river situations because of my Folstaf, I just purchased a new Foltstaf. The Folstaf will assemble itself in 5 seconds or less. You only need to pull it out of the holster with one hand to accomplish the assembly.

2. The Simms staff is too thin - I put my 180 pounds of body weight on the staff at the show and it began to bow. Simms is a great company and I own two pairs to Simms waders. But, the Folstaf has a superior design, is larger in diameter and has withstood the test of time.
