first, sizing. I'm 5' 10" and have the 115cm-140cm length. This length is great for what I use it for, snowshoing, splitboard touring, and backpacking. The Flickpro adjuster is very easy to use, even with gloves on. The shorter option would have worked, but sometimes I do extend the pole pretty far if the snow is really deep and soft. I give it four stars due to the fact that it is a little long on my pack when I'm not using it, but I knew that when I got the longer pole. Even the shorter 92 cm length would be longer than I would ideally want on my pack. This is a small sacrifice for a killer pole.
