Wading Staff Review by Norm - Prairie Village, KS, USA
Overall
A client gave me my staff as a tip. He had been seeing how I was "lusting" over his. That was 5 years ago. After those hard use years using it as not only a wading staff but as a walking stick through out Wyoming and Patagonia it finally gave it up. A hard tumble on the Rio Simpson bent it beyond repair. I've ordered a replacement!

Wading Staff Review by ICHItheKILLER - Seattle WA.
Overall
Great staff. I used my fishing rod for support in over waist deep running river water with reel submerged, not a good idea I know. I now have my first wading staff and will stay with the Simms wading staff. Light weight, compact, and out of the way while fishing.

Broken Cord after many years of use Review by Trevor.r- Australia
Overall
This has been a great product and have used on a regular basis for 6 years plus. Cord has just broken at top connection point most probably due to wear. Will have no hesitation in buying Simms replacement wading stick as have not seen anything as good on market

Broken Cord Review by Scott - Biltmore Lake
Overall
Have had the staff for a little over one year. It worked well. Used only 3-4 times and cord broke at connection to first section. Emailed Simms customer service, but received no reply. Very unusual.

NUMBER "1" WADING STAFF Review by CHUCK SORRENTINO - nj
Overall
this is the all time #1 wading staff on the market today. the inner core is steel coated(not bungy style)so it will never stretch out and wear. very secure when together. the thinner design is easier leverage in the swift moving current. well made and very light weight. this staff saved my client's life. definetly worth the money!!!!!

The Best Staff Available. Review by Kingfisher - Kingfield, Me. U.S.
Overall
This staff is the very best you can purchase. Easy to use and dependable when needed. Stores well and it's clean design is never in the way when you are fishing. The staff is very lightweight so you don't really notice it during all day sessions. A great piece of gear.

I like it Review by FlyGyd - Bethel, Maine
Overall
Before this staff came out I thought the best available was the folding staff with the cork handle, shock cord, and the tapered ferrules. Lean on it for a day in cold water the ferrules were near impossible to get apart. After pulling hard enough the cork handle came off. Simms solved those problems with the slip together ferrules and the sliding lock tube. The grip handle has a comfortable shape it looks like it will stay on. I like the zinger. Its been long enough to reach where I needed and retracts to keep the staff from floating downstream and tangling my fly line. There are a couple of things I'm not thrilled with. It takes two hands to deploy, at least if you are in waist deep fast water, which is usually when I want it. The neoprene sheath is nicer than the other brand does wear quickly if it gets bumped on the bottom when the staff is stowed. The sharp edges of the folded sections can cut little "smiles" in the neoprene. Overall, the positives outweigh the negatives by a wide margin. I'm keeping it and recommend it to others.

Pro Team Member Review by Roger - Cheyenne WY
Overall
Have used the rest, glad I choose to give it a try. After 1 year of use it is everything I need. Unparalleled support when wading, convenient storage and love the retractor. Keeps the staff out of my way when I'm in the water. It's best feature is how quick it goes together and comes apart. No more straining to pull the staff apart In fact, you can put it away while walking. Excellent product.
