Simply put: It works
I need a cane for balance assistance. The cane I use is old, but still works. Regrettably I can't say that about the tip, which has been replaced a few times. My biggest problem happens on wet or waxed floors, my old, worn cane tip just didn't stay put like it should. Meh, it was worn pretty badly. So I replaced it with this new "pivoting" big cane tip and suddenly I don't have to be paranoid of a little water or shiny flooring. It works, period, keeping my cane where I put it and me upright and not reaching for a wall to lean on. Like I said> it works.
