After conversing thru instant messaging last week.... ...No email to confirm shipment!!
Out of the fifty hiking sticks I ordered, five of them did not have enough batteries to make the lights work, and one of them had a broken connector to the light. So, pretty good odds of getting a working light, but not great. The part you screw and unscrew to get the pole to extend gets caught on itself a few times, but once you get used to that, it works fine.
Shipping was a problem
The only choices were premium shipping - basic did not work
I spent more than I wanted to - but the product was worth the extra expense
Fix the shipping
