For the value, these are great poles.
They're a little heavy, and not the stiffest pole out there, but you aren't going to have to pay $100+ and that's great if all you're looking to do is get a little work out in the winter.
I get a little flex from these poles if I use them for skate skiing and my arms get awfully tired, but they hold up pretty well for classic.
I've seen people accidentally fall over and land on their poles and they bend pretty easy, and since it's aluminum, if you try to bend them back you're likely to snap them.
For the price, these poles are hard to beat. If you're an "experienced" nordic skier and need a pole to really perform for you, I'd look elsewhere and maybe give the Salomon Equipe 60 Carbon Ski Pole a shot
