Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I loved these poles. Lightweight, comfortable, easy to adjust. I had for a bit longer than a year. Cork did start to wear a bit. Used them for day hikes and backpacks. I tend to go off trail a lot. Last time I used them, was crossing a talus field. Pole caught between 2 rocks and as I move forward snapped just below lower adjustment clamp. Am going with a stronger aluminum or titanium pole next time.

Didn't see a UL1 (one-person tent) listed, so am writing here in the UL2 section. The UL1 (same design, just smaller) is an outstanding tent. Plenty of room for me (5'10") with room for clothes, etc. at the foot and easy to sit up. Set up is a snap for one person in about 5 minutes. Fly has plenty of room for gear like boots, pack. Handled 50 mph winds and big-time thunderstorms in Sierras flawlessly. Is truly freestanding, unlike some of its competitors (e.g. Hubba Hubba, Big Agnes Fly Creek). Love it.
