The Novoflex Telescope Rod is a lightweight and sturdy walking stick. The variable height of this hiking stick telescopes from 27-68". It comes with a walnut knob which covers the 1/4"-20 threaded mount at the top of the leg, and a strap.These 'sticks' were originally designed for use with the Quadropod system; to function as a walking stick, or to convert the Quadrapod Spider into a monopod, duopod, tripod, or QuadroPod (additional purchases required). These 'legs' can also be used with the Novoflex BasicBall in a similar manner. With 3 of these telescopic legs attached to the BasicBall, the resulting 'tripod' can be adjusted from 24-51" (61-130 cm) in height.
