Superb, but...

Hard to argue with design -- Flintlocks work; nice grips and straps -- but the swing weight isn't impressive for a "Pure Carbon" pole. They're nicely stiff (even lengthened out to 140 cm), but, there it is again, they feel heavy. The BD Traverse poles, while a tad heavier, feel lighter and what a deal!
