Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought these for our annual elk hunt. we were going to be packing in and camping in the high country. My hunting partner is my cousin's boy so he is 32 to my 59. These trekking poles helped equalize the age difference. Come the last day with our heaviest packs of 80-90 pounds and 5 miles out to vehicle, could really tell the difference. Nice being able to adjust poles. going uphill shorten them up down hill lengthen them. they were light, strong, really love them. Camera acted up so don't have any pictures to share, That was a real downer.
