like a tornado.... but not
« on: November 20, 2009, 07:29:54 PM »
Hey there!  I've not been on here in ages.  School has been keeping me hopping.  Well, you know what I mean.

I bought a pair of "Tornado" tips for crutches a few years back.  I really like them, but I can't use crutches anymore.  So I thought I'd see if they make tornados for cane tips.  They do, but only if you buy THEIR CANE.  (http://www.fetterman-crutches.com)

Does anyone know of cane tips that are similar to these?  They were good on wet, they had a nice wide base....

Thanks.

Jason,

Looks like the Tornado tips fit shafts from .75 to 1". I did a quick check of my cheap metal cane and it was .75" Have you checked the diameter of your cane? It might fit. If your cane is smaller you can probably build it up to the diameter of the tip.
