If you want a SERIOUS wading staff you go here: Wading Staffs
Had mine made (to order as all are) so it comes almost up to the middle of my nose. Great for poking and prodding in front of you as you wade. Staffs, at least mine and I think that's the norm, is at least 1" thick so you can really put your weight to the thing and IT WILL NOT BEND like a wet noodle.
'Cheap' they are not but I figure, dived by years of use, this thing has cost me less than ten buck per.
Pretty cheap for a great life insurance policy! :thumbs: Taking a swim in a Pacific Northwest River is not an option....
Do you let it hang behind you when not in use like you did with your other one? Can't remember what you had it attached to? Gear keeper?
Edit: obviously you do.... second question still applicable though.
