This is a reasonably priced pole for the intermediate skier - particularly for classic skiing.. For skate skiing the pole is really a little to flexible in longer lengths for good power transfer. Most intermediate level and up pole grips now come with some version of a release mechanism that allows system detachment of the hand grip from the pole. This is a tremendous convenience feature. But Fischer manages to almost entirely negate with feature with a mechanism that is actually painful to operate because it takes a great deal of pressure from both the thumb and forefinger to compress the two button levers on the side of the grip to release the hand grip straps from the pole. If you have a choice, buy - in order of best to worst, poles from Leki, Swix, or Komperdell with their release systems if you value that feature.

These X-country poles are an excellent for the price, especially the "Deal Flier" one! They're light yet durably made, with baskets that won't slip off, comfortable grips and an adjustment option for the wrist straps. Also, no problem finding the 135mm size. I'm very pleased with them.
