    Great review there Shug!! I have maybe half a dozen nights in my XLC, sold my regular WBBB to a buddy. It was great, but the 11 foot XLC is more comfy for this 6'4" 280lb fellow.

    Local for me. My pain has not been that bad, just the tingling arm and hand. I had a fusion done about 10 years ago and it is now putting pressure on the other disk around it.

    Poles worked out well. They only weigh 2.6 ounces for the pair. They are not as compact as some of the others on the market...but the price was right. :-)
