Does anyone have this or know anything about it? Is it good for snow or ice? I'm not sure if it has any kind of grippers on the bottom. TIA to all who reply! {#emotions_dlg.sleep}

I don't use one but I know the one you are talking about. It looks practical and useful.

There are some reviews for the "All Terrain Hurry Cane" listed at Amazon that you may find helpful. Some are complaining it does not stand up well on carpeting - only flat surfaces. I have no personal experience to share, sorry.

Thanks - I saw those reviews. No one really addresses the snow/ice issue. I emailed HurryCane.com because I want to know what the bottom is like, but I haven't heard back yet. Thanks for your response! {#emotions_dlg.sleep}

My Dad does not have the Hurry cane but we looked into it for him. He has a really nice cane that he likes that does have a gripper bottom my sister bought him at Walmart ( I think ) the same bottom as the Hurry cane and so now he has a standing cane. His cane just fit into the bottom that she bought

He likes it alot especially if he is sitting in a chair and goes to get up the cane is right there in front of him.

As far as ice and snow he does not really go out in the bad weather he is very unsteady on his feet.

Oops! So sorry! Yeah, speak of the devil ... there's a definite nip in the air this evening. ;-) Wow, they must be moving a lot of canes without bothering to inform the consumer of the specs. I would not purchase one until my concerns were addressed. Such a bother dealing with returns, IMHO.
