    :banana Hiking Stick Question

    I just bought Brazo hiking stick and I love it. My question is this, is there anyway to protect the lower end from getting bashed up from the sharp rocks we have here in PA? (Most hiking go to to die in this state. I hope not this one.)

    Beautiful walking stick. One could dip the tip into a rubberized undercoating or paint. I dip my landscaping hand yard tool handles into flexible rubberized paint. Rhino lining, Flex Seal, etc.

    Crutch tips.

    Use them on my natural wood sticks.

    If you have an Ace Hardware handy, they sell chair tips in various sizes. I use them for my bamboo hiking staff. They come in packs of four and one tip will last a couple-few hundred miles. I'm on my second pack.
