I got this pair as I broke a 100% carbon pole. These ones are easy to adjust, which is good when used for touring and in the slopes. Hand loops also adjust easily, and stay put when in use. But I do not quite trust these poles, as I very well know they might snap if I put too much load on them.
The avalanche probe feature is 97% worthless to me. I would rather have the chance to turn the pole into a photo monopod. I also agree that there is not much vertical adjustment available - but I have nevertheless not found this as a problem. Actually, I believe this is a good way to avoid the carbon part from breaking, by having more of it inside the upper metal tube part.
