love at first ski
i love these poles. you couldn't really ask for more in a pole. I've been using these for a couple years now and they are holding up beautifully.
They're just poles, right?
Unless you're racing at an extremely competitive venue, I can't imagine why you would want more of a pole than is offered in the Joystick Spicolli. It's a pole. It's an aluminum tube with a basket on one end and a handle on the other.
The Good: This pole has unique paint which is kind of fun and will set you apart from the crowd in the lift-line.
The Bad: The grips that come with these poles are a low-quality plastic. If you're like me, that's a not a big deal. If you want something better, the grips are easy to replace.
The Bottom Line: Why would you pay more for a pole that will do the exact same thing and not look as cool?
anybody know the diameter at the grip? I...
anybody know the diameter at the grip? I want to put my old handles on. while we're at it, anybody know what type of glue to use for that?
All around good pole
I picked these up for a really low price on backcountry (they're one of the cheapest poles on here), and I couldn't be more happy that I did. I considered composites as well, but now that I have these, I wouldn't switch. They're fairly light and feel extremely solid. They look MUCH cooler in person than they do in these pictures. I'm 5'10", got the 120cm and they're the perfect size. Very pleased with my purchase.
Fun and Inexpensive
Awesome. These were a gift for my Girlfriend for Christmas and she loves them. Not that I care, but her first comment of "The match my skis!" seemed to sum up her thoughts. Inexpensive, functional, and cool looking. Ideal for the hot chick intermmediate skier.
