This quality shooting stick is suitable for horse shows, golf tournaments, travel or wherever a handy seat is required. The shaft is made of chrome plated steel and can be easily adjusted to a large range of heights to suit virtually any user (from a seat height of about 50 to 75cm / 20 to 30'').
The seat is made of black leather and when in the closed position a press stud keeps the two sides of the seat / handle secure, making it a handy walking stick. It has a base plate to stop it sinking into soft ground and this plate folds out of the way when not in use. The seat frame and base plate are stainless steel. The unit does not come with a rubber tip but these are available from most hardware stores and some pharmacies (note however, that a tip would restrict the extent to which the base plate can fold).
When in walking stick mode, the maximum height of the shooting stick is 94cm, measured from the bottom tip to the top of the handle (this assumes the tightening bolt is engaged in the last hole in the shaft -- very tall users could extend the unit another few centimetres by securing the bolt onto the shaft below the bottom hole, which is still strong if tightened well).
The manufacturers of the shooting stick do not specify a weight limit. This is possibly because the unit is designed to be leaned on (taking an uncertain proportion of the user's weight) rather than sat upon (taking their full weight). What we can say on this subject is that we have sold hundreds of these sticks and not had any problems reported to us regarding their strength.
If you would like to take the shooting stick travelling, the unit can be broken into two pieces, making it easy to pack into a bag. The larger (top) part is 60cm long.
