Darn. I should've ordered one of these when I ordered my new cane. Now I can't, since they've instituted a fifty dollar minimum order. While spare tips are good to have, 50 bucks worth I do not need. Maybe one of the distributors will start carrying them soon.

If ordered not too long ago, you might want to check in with them because it may not have even been available at the time of the order. Gordon said they might be at ACB as well if you are looking to pick one up at convention. The weight is much lighter than the mock up I saw in 2014 and the sound that comes from it is far louder too.
