Reed, I find the same thing happens with my less expensive Spirit River. I have had it come apart in the middle of the river and had a really tough time getting it out.

I use a staff 100% of the time now and plan to tape the connections.

I think the only wading staff that will keep me upright these days is two NFL linebackers standing a few feet downstream with their hands out. Where do you hire those guys?

Those linebackers should be available about now, until the next training season begins...

Beyond the staff, I appreciate my tightly cinched belt and staff holster. I find it's more comfortable during a day of standing in the stream to have the back support a belt provides.
