Not all walking sticks are suitable for some people and tall people especially need a stick with a bit more length than the average to be able to use the walking stick correctly and comfortably.
Manufacturers make extra long walking sticks for people that are 6ft and taller as its important that a tall person is not needing to lean awkwardly as this could put strain on the persons back and hips, so having a longer length walking stick can prevent the chance of that happening.
A good quality extra long walking stick wont usually cost more as it’s just a few inches extra length and the stick will still have the strength and support needed by the user.
The longer sticks will often be around 38 – 40 inches long.
