  1. I am so glad you are featuring walking sticks, especially by the pair. I made myself a couple out of solid wood. They really help one to get around in all kinds of terrain and make even level ground walking much more pleasant. I find that they help to tone up your upper body and arms too. But mine don’t telescope of course and that is a great feature. The price of those you feature is less for a pair than many single sticks.
