Feel pretty sturdy yet lightThese feel sturdy but light for an initial assessment. Each pole telescopes as three pieces, which folded easily into lugguge (I kept the packaging to make packing easier). Nice touch was the guards on the pole tips - on previous poles, I wrapped tips in tape to minimize punctured luggage. The glove-like handles come off easily so hope these will spare the wear on each years hiking gloves. My similar 3-part poles went for a couple years with just some (correctable) slippage until they were lost. Hope I can keep these for a few years to give a long term assessment.
Do these really include an antishock feature? I don't see anything anywhere but your website that suggests that they are.

These poles are not shock absorbing. We have corrected our website.

Are these exactly the same as the model by the same name shown on the current Leki website (Leki Model Number: T6403204)? The pictures do not look quite identical, and the Leki website lists more details and features than are on the REI website.
