Living along the gulf coast most people use the hiking sticks or canes on the side walk so the rubber tips are the tips I use the most of. How ever I have done some sticks for people who are use them in the woods. I have used a number of different tips, these are the ones I show people that want more than a rubber tip. I have done a number of the one with the spike and rubber tip. Some think it is a self defense tip. I try and point out in a emergency you are not going to have time to unscrew the tip. But they seem to like to think they can. I get them from Tree Line carving in Utah.
