If you are using your pole outdoors mostly (which is probably most pole photographers), there may be
situations where a Gitzo spike could assist with pole stability. It easily goes into soft grass/ground,
and can be very helpful if shooting among rocks. You will find these accessories on our ordering page.

Wonderpole Spike Kit Complete (includes shock absorber and spare/heavy duty end cap)
|Our spike kit complete for Wonderpoles comes with the Gitzo 1 1/2 inch spike on an extra long
heavy duty end cap, the Gitzo rubber foot (which fits on the spike for indoor use), a replacement heavy duty end cap without a spike,
a shock absorber for your pole, and a spare clamp if you are not using a rubber weight boot. The standard spike kit comes without the shock absorber or
spare end cap. The shock absorber is a very useful accessory as it
may prevent excessive shock when lowering your camera from a vertical position and may also be purchased separately.|
|The Gitzo spike kit for painter's poles has the same Gitzo spike and rubber foot on an
extra long end cap. This end cap fits over the rubber end that is on most painter poles (e.g., Mr. Longarm paint poles) and is secured to the pole with the clamp.
