These are awesome, been backpacking without poles until I picked up a set for my partner and I. They seem to stay straight even with some misuse.
been a long distance hiker for 35 years,never bothered with trekking poles before..bought a pair of these beauties and realised what I've been missing...best tenner ever spent!
Just what I needed , training for a 26 mike charity hike. I get some back pain, am over weight and helps me go further. Well worth the money
Bought these poles to replace ones where the locking mechanism had gone. the ball bearing stops is a simple idea. Time will tell if they stand up to prolonged use.
Even though the pole is of good quality , you only get one pole! It was not obvious from the description! You normally get things like socks a poles in twos! Now I have to order another one and pay for the delivery again. I am very unhappy about that!

Well made perfect design
Great for a bit of hill walking and getting across rocky streams
Great product, solid and simple construction. Light weight ideal for short flat walks.
I've only used these a couple of times and the poles themselves are okay for the price. But if you think you're going to use the straps, go for the more expensive model as these straps are useless. They start cutting into your hands pretty soon.
Good pole but the extension gets jammed very easily from sand and gritt
