Here's a question (on behalf of a friend really).
Friend of mine has trouble walking. Uses 1 or 2 sticks from time to time. Wants some better ones. Any advice ?
They don't need carved moose-heads. They need to _work_,to be lightweight, and to have comfortable grips. What's a goos start for materials (I'm thinking titanium and carbon fibre !)

Can't say I've ever worked with either carbon fiber or titanium :) They both would be light and strong. I ran into a wood from down south once that was the lightest I've ever seen and amazingly stout. It has a dense grain, very white colored wood. Unfortunately the guy didn't know what type of wood it was and there really was no identifying features. Wasn't Basswood. Maybe some Gum of some description. Up north here we have a limited number of species. Get below that Mason-Dixon line and ya' got a slew of different trees and shrubs (comparitively). Ask the ASA list. Happy Carvin'
