The good folks at Simms just shot me an email today about the wading staff I recently returned. They say it is unrepairable and they will replace the faulty one. As you may recall (see 9/12/08 blog entry), this was the second staff to go down in flames. I have heard a lot of negative stories about this Simms product. On a more positive note, Simms makes good waders. I love my G3s.
Newsflash!! The Simms Wading Staff is not reliable for wading safely.
