Amazing Reach Cane Review
When I first saw the website for Amazing Reach Cane, I immediately thought of two previous products I’ve discussed here: Get Up & Go Cane, and the Grab It reacher. Amazing Reach Cane shares many similar design features with Get Up & Go Cane, and also serves as a grabbing tool.
As a cane, Amazing Reach Cane sports a stable quad base, which many cane users have told me offers improved stability over standard canes. It also features a dual-handle design to make standing easier, and this is a feature I first noticed on the Get Up & Go Cane. An included hook is helpful for temporarily storing items such as a purse, especially when you are using both hands to stand.
To activate the grabber, you slide the handle downward which will reveal the reaching tool, and then press the trigger. Although the commercial shows it easily lifting heavy objects, I’d take those claims with a grain of salt. I’ve tested quite a few reachers/grabbers over the years and rarely are they able to handle a 5-pound bag of flour as easily as the commercial suggests. It has also been my experience than sometimes hybrid products don’t usually out-perform two items with a single function. Thus, you can probably find a better cane and a better reacher as individual items. On the other hand, if you don’t require the highest quality cane or grabber, Amazing Reach Cane may be a good fit for you.
Keep in mind that the website for Amazing Reach Cane was only registered in August 2017, which tells me this is a test marketed item. If that is the case, it’s likely that the company only produced a small number of units – or even just a prototype – to advertise. If there are sufficient orders, they’ll have to go back to the factory to produce more, which could take many weeks to arrive at your doorstep. If there isn’t enough interest, they’ll cancel all orders and discontinue the product. That’s a rather common practice for test-marketed As Seen on TV products, although I can’t say for sure that is the case here.
I’ll update this space as more information becomes available.
There have been other canes which included a grabbing device, such as the Snapper Cane, which offers a much smaller grabber than Amazing Reach Cane. If you’re just looking for a cane, this $16 folding cane by Vive sports a high consumer rating, while this $15 reacher – also by Vive – is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.
Below is my video review for another grabber, called Grab It, which may be of interest to you.
