First Pair of Sticks
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I purchased these recently for an upcoming PCT hike. I have never used trekking poles before and honestly I thought they were mostly for old people and people with too much money. But despite my bias, everything I read said they come in handy after a couple hundred miles. So I got these after doing a bunch of research and took them out last weekend on a 30 mile trip. Here are my thoughts:
Using sticks definitely took some getting used to. You walk different and I found myself looking on where to put the sticks more than where to put my feet. Adjusting to the right height also took a little getting used to. But I eventually got settled in.
The grips are really comfortable! The shape and contour fit my hands perfect and just felt really natural in my hand. The speedlock system for adjusting was super quick and felt really secure. I have seen other poles with the twist lock and they are crap. They don't seem to hold and are impossible unlock and lock. The speedlock is really solid. I put almost all my weight on a single stick a couple times coming down a steep pass and they never slipped and felt really solid. Did I mention they were solid? And not only are they really strong... and solid, they are also impressively light-weight.
Overall I am really happy with these sticks and look forward to putting many more miles on them.
