Light weight, Small grips!I have been on two short trips with these and they are a great change from the cheapos I had before. ,,,,Pros - Light weight, easy and quick to break down, very easy and quick to set up. Very solid feel.,,,,Cons - I have small hands and a size 8.5 shoe, hey, stop laughing, and the grips on these are really small. Maybe my inexperience doesn't allow me to appreciate this fact but I would think that normal size hands would find the grips uncomfortable. It is similar to having too small a grip on your tennis racket. If the smaller grips are normal, great sticks.

Awesome Stix Easy to adjustI spent 3 days on the Kalalau Trail in Kauai and these trekking poles were a life saver... literally. It was easy to adjust them short for the uphill climbs and within seconds you can extend them for downhill. The best part is they are super light and breakdown next to nothing. i was able to fit them in my carry-on for the flight out there. I expect these poles to last a lifetime after what i put them through. The carbide tips really grip the rock well.

Great poles.These trekking poles are pretty sweet. The price is great and I've had these poles for about two years now and haven't had any trouble on the slopes. 'I don't write many reviews but when I do, it's Black Diamond'.
