[nabs-l] 50/50 NFB Canes

Hi,

Does anyone here have experience with or use an NFB 50/50 cane?

I've occasionally heard they're unstable and not worth the purchase,
but I don't know how reliable that information is. I'd think they'd be
more reliable than the very disappointing telescoping canes given they
only fold in two sections and they would seem like a nice compromise
between a long nonfolding model and one that folds in many small
pieces. Do they live up to expectation or should I just stick with the
regular NFB straight cane? If they're worth using, which material do
you prefer -- carbon fiber or fiberglass?

Thanks for any thoughts or opinions.
