Received the poles yesterday…a great day for testing them out as it was a rainy day. Hiked 5 miles on various ground types and hills…was I surprised! Such a big difference compared to the 3 piece aluminum poles that I had been using. I really had my doubts about the one- piece carbon poles. Your poles do not vibrate and are much more secure so, I am very pleased.
Glad I chose these poles over the Black Diamond brand… They do not, in my opinion have the same response.
