Rated 3 out of 5 by from For what you pay they are worth it. For what they cost I would say they are good for a beginner. The first problem I found was that the baskets that are provided are not meant for snow and when I would put the poles into deep snow and pull them out the weight of the snow would yank the baskets off. I solved this buy buying a cheap pair of snowbaskets that screwed onto these poles, although you need to make sure the baskets you purchase are compatible. The spring shocks inside worked well for a while, but after several trips they are less effective. After one season these things have taken a beating, and although they still work I will need to get a newer and better set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, the Rhyolites exceed my expectations for an economical trekking pole! I purchased trekking poles for the sole purpose of providing relief for a bad knee that flared up on a recent backpacking trip, and these poles lived up to my expectation on the first outing. The Rhyolites are a tad more weighty that others in the herd of poles, but not enough that I noticed it. They performed as well as my buddy's Komperdells he loaned me, and strides (pardon the pun) above my brother-in-law's Swiss Army brand. They adjust easily and quickly, provide excellent support (I'm 6'4", 245 lbs.), and retract small enough that one won't look like a goober when they are attached to the sides of a Trailblazer CamelBak. You really appreciate the traction of the carbide tips when you c

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 150 miles and counting on my set. I got my set when I purchased my M.S. pack. I have logged over 150 HARD miles on my set. I will be purchasing another set soon because the carbide tips are almost gone and cannot be replaced. I had an issue with one of the baskets coming off but determined that it was actually cracked at the threads. Again, HARD miles. Corrected it with a small amount of epoxy. Anyway, for the hiking I do they work. I just wish I could replace the tips like Leki or Black Diamond. For the casual weekend hiker, they are more than adequate and will save you lots of $$$.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Like having 4 feet I bought the Mountainsmith Rhyolite 6061 trekking poles for my mom who's about 60 and still loves to go on day hikes and explore. I've been able to go out with her on two hikes already since Christmas and she loves them. She said she's never going back to hiking without them and they give an extra level of confidence across snow, rocky surfaces, and even ice/water. The removable rubber tips and great for road surfaces, but the baskets and carbide tips are great in varying terrain and snow. The three section design with anti-shock absorption, and aluminium construction can handle a lot of wear and tear. The rubber moulded grips and wrist straps allow for easy handling and comfort in movement. Actually getting another pair for my dad for his birthday!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good pole but parts fall off A good economical pole, I have put many miles on my set. But the rubber foot and basket design is horrible. I have lost my second set of baskets in two years. I don't like the idea of constantly checking my baskets for how tight they are every day I backpack but with this set apparently you have to. Otherwise a good trekking pole.,,,,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for your money This is my trekking pole purchase and I have to say I'm very happy with these. I was worried because they cost less than most poles I found. But they don't seem cheaply made at all. Very light and comfortable to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value pickup Worked great on a recent trek near Holy Cross in Colorado. Great value for the price. My friend had a pair of Leki poles which were a bit lighter but not enough for me to question the purchase given the price paid.
