Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really versitile I've used this stick almost daily for 6 months and continue to find new things to love about it. I have "foot drop", a neurological condition that makes it difficult to walk. The Trecker FX helps a lot. I like to ride my bike but had to find a way to take my stick with me. The knob and cloth loop at the top, plus the ability to easily shorten the stick, makes it possible to carry it on the top bar of the bike with the tip under the rear carrier spring. The Trecker collapses to less than 3 feet easily for carrying or storing and then easily extends to whatever is the best length for a given person. The spring loading feature is terrific and the sturdy rubber tip keeps it from slipping. Really a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Monopod + Usual Bells + Whistles + Price = :-) After misplacing my trusty old wooden staff, I thought I would look at aluminum hiking sticks. I couldn't really justify 60-90 bucks as is the price range for everything else I saw. Then I saw this one. It has cushioned grip, anti-shock, adjustable wrist strap, telescoping sections (my preference over shock corded folding, as it is more versatile in adjusting for conditions and terrain), carbide tip, rubber cushion, hiking basket. Plus, it has a camera mount, which for me is about 40% about why I wanted a replacement anyway. This all came for $23 on sale at REI. ($30 regular price). So what did I miss out on at 1/4 the price of other poles? The handstrap is webbing instead of a fancy neoprene type fabric and it is an ounce heavier than most of the other poles I see on the REI website. Now to me, I cannot determine if that ounce makes any real difference in usability. It might however be a plus in regards to durability. Too soon to say on that subject. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star ranking is I am not all that fond of yellow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought it for a monopod. This is an ok trekking pole. Nothing to really write hone about as a trekking pole, but I really like it as a platform to shoot my camera off of. This last weekend I used it up in the white mountains to get some wide angle shots of a group with. Much more steady than free hand. I bought this just to use for this reason. I've never been a huge fan of trekking poles so I see this been strapped to my pack for use in photography and that small chance I need a pole to help climb along.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Camera mount screw too long I was looking for a lightweight hiking staff that could double as a monopod instead of a heavier monopod that could double as a hiking pole. I like this as a hiking pole. I often place my hand on top of the pole like a cane and the head is very comfortable when used that way. It seems to be pretty solid but I have only taken it out a couple of times so durability is still an unknown quantity. It loses a star for using internal twist locks instead of the more reliable and less fidgety external type. It loses another star for the screw that goes into the tripod socket of your camera being way too long. A lot of cameras get destroyed when a screw that is too long gets driven into the camera. There is an adjustable washer that will prevent this from happening if you are careful but failing to adjust it would be an easy and expensive mistake to make. I would have just shortened the screw except that socket on the head is recessed so it needs a long screw to be attached. There are better hiking poles out there but usually at 3 times the price I paid for this one. I have gone through a few sets of more expensive ones over the years which failed after being damaged in a fall, bent in luggage, accidentally sat on, etc. No pole can take abuse like that so if I am going to break them every few years there is no point in buying a more expensive model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works way better than the Cain I was using before. I just received my Trekker FX 7075 and it's made a big difference compared to the Cain I was using before. I've got a bad ankle and need to try to try to stay off of it as much as possible but I've got a lot to do and need to get around. I'm glad it's height adjustable. I recommend this product to anyone who may be looking for a Cain but with comfort and adjustability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY HANDY Bought this for an upcoming European adventure. No, not for hiking in the Alps, for negotiating airports. On our last overseas air trip, my partner and discovered anyone (including us) brandishing a cane in an airline terminal was immediately spotted and collected by an electric golf cart there to whisk them to their next gate, terminal, customs, wherever. Hoping this light, collapsible beauty will serve that purpose for us. As a bonus it has a monopod camera screw hidden under the cap, so it's useful for photography too. In a pinch can also be used for hiking. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent trail mate for the money Years ago while backpacking, a friend, who was using a wooden hiking staff, had that staff break as she stepped off a foot bridge and had all her weight on it. The fall wasn't pretty. Partially due to this, I never really liked hiking poles. I just don't trust them like I do my own legs. But, as the song goes, I am older now. At 58 I am still hiking what I call pretty aggressively. My legs do get tired faster than they used to. I want my upper body to share in the effort. So, I bought one of these when on sale (or I guess I used my rebate). That was about 6 months and a few hundred miles ago. On the first hike or second, I lost the cup (whatever you call those things) at the bottom end of the pole. It may have been user error, but I think they might have figured a better way to keep that attached. The hand grip turns off and becomes a great monopod for your camera, but I haven't actually used that feature yet. What I love is it's light weight, shortness when compacted, and the way all I have to do to adjust length is turn the part of the tube that I want adjusted. Turn the shaft, extend to desired length, turn back, and its never let me down. Sturdy, easy, affordable, and multipurpose. I also do neighborhood walks where there are a lot of dogs roaming, and this thing gives me the feel of some protection. I wouldn't want to be jabbed with it. Also, the strap and head of staff are comfortable to the hand. I use this for several different grips. Anyway, I just bought another. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lightweight yet sturdy stick I love the fact that you can 'lock-out' the shock-absorbing feature. Sometimes you just need a really sturdy pole and this enables that. It has easy extension and fuss-free adjustments. No clips to pinch your fingers!

Does this come apart into sections so that it can be packed in a suitcase? If so, what is the length of the longest section?

Asked by: Bob Haar
While the sections of the Trekker FX 7075 Monopod/Walking Staff can be separated, this is not recommend by Mountainsmith. This could cause damage to the spring and expander nuts.

Would the camera mount fit a gopro hero4 session?

Asked by: Austin Blythe
Not directly. GoPro sells a tripod mount that will work with the Trekker FX 7075 Monopod/Walking Staff:
