Guideline Foldable Carbon Wading Staff. Compact, lightweight and sturdy wading staff made of strong graphite with impact resistant aluminum bottom section and tungsten end point. The staff is 36 centimeters long when folded and carried in provided pouch. Fully extended it measures 147 cm and is equipped with both ball-lock and telescope snap-lock closures for added safety when wading. The upper end features a non-slip EVA handle with dual height multigrip area which lets you find the perfect fit for your hand.
Strong, non-stretch PE inner cord locks the staff in extended mode. This is an important feature when wading in rocky areas as it keeps the joints together even if the staff gets stuck between rocks on the bottom. The inner cord is easy to change if it breaks or get torn. Just under the handle you find a D-ring attachment point for safety-lanyard, retractor or a short string to keep it safe and within reach. Delivered with a soft polyester pouch with velcro closure and belt loop. Weight including pouch: 250 grams. Black color with dark grey handle and black pouch.

Review by Rose Steven
The design seems perfect providing a highly portable and very light wading stick. In practice however.... the first one arrived without a D loop fastening more worryingly after one afternoon of use in brisk water the small nut and bolt holding the locking link in place came off in the water. This effectively renders the stick unusable and dangerous if discovered midriver Thankfully Uttings despatched a replacement very promptly however I now lack confidence in the product and find myself checking it regularly.
