Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid trekking poles Strong, reliable trekking poles. I use mine for trekking and backcountry skiing. They're not the absolute lightest or the very latest model, but they're stable and durable. Six years ago I bent one when I jammed it sideways between two trees. I was able to bend the pole back so it collapses fully, and I've had no issues with it since. I particularly like the extended grips which make it easy to vary your hand placement when the trail alternates little ups and downs. The flicklock levers work great with gloves, and you can adjust the lock tightness screw with a fingernail. Bottom line: I won't be replacing these until they break, and who knows when that will be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Very versatile poles. Two locks on each pole allow them to collapse to a fairly short length. Would be nice if they came with soft tips for hiking in warm weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep trekking Nice poles: comfortable, thin and light. Grips feel good. Severely tested them on a flood day. I weigh 150 pounds, and there was no buckle or slippage vaulting flooded creek sections.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grips too small I take a men's large or extra-large size glove. Was shocked to see how small the grips on these poles are and believe the small diameter will cause excessive hand fatigue. I also find the foam grip extension to be less grippy than some poles I have used and pretty short, but I could have lived with it. However, the grip diameter is a show-stopper and I will be returning these poles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hiking poles I bought these to replace some old Silvas that stopped working. They collapse to a short length that fits easily on my pack. Quick to adjust (short for uphill long for downhill). In nine days one slipped to a shorter position once, when my full weight came down on it. The slip may have prevented it from bending.

Other than weight, what advantage does carbon have over aluminum?

Asked by: Phip
Carbon can help dampen vibrations a little more than aluminum.
