Is the Folstaf® SLIM LITE Walking Staff Right For Me?
People who buy the Folstaf® SLIM LITE use them for city-oriented trips in Europe, to climb up to Machu Pichu, for strolling through parks, and for added stability and balance in day to day life.
When to choose Folstaf® SLIM LITE Metro vs. Folstaf® SLIM LITE Original:
Folstaf® SLIM LITE Metro: If you will be using your walking stick
only indoors or on city sidewalks, and you are a frequent airline carry-on baggage traveler,
consider the Folstaf® SLIM LITE Metro, the city-friendly folding walking staff.
Folstaf® SLIM LITE Metro can only be used with rubber cap.
Folstaf® SLIM LITE Original: If you plan to use your walking stick on wet and/or slippery surfaces, uneven sidewalks or roads, dirt paths (urban or not), consider the added safety of the original Folstaf® SLIM LITE Original road-hugging carbide tip. Folstaf® SLIM LITE Original also comes with a rubber cap which fits over the carbide when walking indoors or on other easily marred surfaces.

• you are large and/or heavy in size
• you need to negotiate through snow or over icy patches
• you will use your stick on - rocky terrain, uneven or
