"Probably the greatest Poles money can buy!!"
Ultra light and incredibly strong. The cork grip is more comfortable than any other pole ive ever handled. The foam "choke-up" section is perfectly placed for those tough ascents. The nubuck strap is just right. the strap is perfectly sized. the rounded top is great for palming the poles when descending and has just the right amount of grip for when your pole is inverted for use with a tarp like shelter. They do come with wider snow baskets but do not come with rubber tips. i do recommend shelling out the extra $5 for the rubber tips. this will prolong the life of the replaceable carbide alloy tips for when you really need them. I love them. So will you!
