Strong Poles but...The plastic baskets attach to the poles with a plastic thread on the basket and the poles. They will not stay on. I super glued them on but they came off again. The baskets and poles need to have metal to metal threaded fasteners. So now I guess I have a new set of trekking poles that I didn't need.

Baskets dont stay onMy experience with these poles is that the baskets contantly come off and are very difficult to purchase replacements. I attempted to buy replacements in anticipation of this prior to losing the first one, but REI did not carry them. I would never buy these poles again.

Adjustable Ski PolesAluminum and plastic, Made in China, not France like Rossignol in the good old days. Hope the plastic clutch adjusting devices last. So far so good--2 weeks in. We'll see if they hold up for a decade-not confident. Perhaps they could sell a replacement adjusting clutch?
