I received the Walkabout, and it was everything as described in the ad. At 6'1" the height was fine, construction great, but the issue was the round knob and its size. Even with larger hands, I had difficulty holding onto the knob. It was just large enough not to get a good feel, and it was smooth enough to make it hard to hold a grip. Picking up the stick to move it proved unwieldy. I only,however, tested it in the house, so as to not damage it in case I wanted to return it or resale it, so I didn't give it a thorough workout. I figured I knew enough about the cane already. Roy M.
