Komperdell. These are the best! Easy to change the length when going up or downhill. Strong; big ice tips so they won't break if slipped into a crack.
CAVEAT - don't whack the sides of your skis with pole to knock off sticky snow: carbon fiber poles might shatter.

I use these poles for backcountry skiing, and they do the job perfectly.. I was unsure about the materials -the newer ones from Komperdell have Titanal in the name- but these have titanal (strong Al alloy) upper shafts with carbon lowers so... what's the diff? My only complaint is that the wrists straps are a little fussy to adjust (for different gloves) but that's a minor thing I can definitely live with.
