The handgrip can be removed to allow a photographer to install a camera mount attachment to snap outdoor photos, or a hunter to add a gun mount. A spike attachment turns the staff into an anchor for a variety of uses, including as a fishing rod holder. Etched into the side of the staff is a 41-inch ruler for measuring fish or other items.
