Perfect for my wife...

When choosing trekking poles, I usually go with something a bit strongger than the normal. With that being said, I decided to buy a men's pair of poles for my wife, and these seem to fit the bill well for her. She mostly uses poles for snowshoeing. For everyone's knowledge, these do not come with baskets... or, if they do... I did not get any. I ended up just buying a set of BD universal baskets for them. The "shock" thing is pretty cool, but I'm not too sure how helpful it is... My wife doesn't even notice them. She does really like the lower grip though.

I own both Trail and Trail Shock BD Trekking Poles and there is a difference when the pole strike makes contack with the ground. Vibration traveling through the poles to the hand. I use my Trail Poles for short excursions and Trail Shock for longer hikes.
