Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was at a trailhead, and planted my poll so I could let go of it to tighten my boot before I took off. It snapped upon contact with the ground. I honestly can not explain how easily this thing snapped. It is less than two months old and has been skied with just a few times, mostly by my 120lb wife. This was the first time I had used the pole.
