Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I take these poles on almost every hike I do. They are comfortable in the hands and the shock absorbing eases impact on the wrists. These are also tough poles. I've taken them off trail through skree, rocky trails, I've accidentally wedged them in the cracks of rocks, and nothing has touched them. They are pretty much in the condition they were in when I bought them. I plan on putting many more miles on these poles.
