I like these poles a lot. And, at the price there a steal for Komps that have some bells and whistles.
Anti-shock is just the right tension.
Love the extended grip option, for a quick choke-up, and its long, so you can realy choke-up for a hoist off a boulder.
Cons (which are minor):
I somewhet agree with the other review that commented on the grips. They are fine for me, but if you had realy huge hands, they might not feel great. they are a little narrow, and I can't see any difference between them and my wife's women-specific version of these poles. That said, I'm 6'2" and have pretty big hands... I also did not experience the black stuff sloughing off the grip as he did.
I did not receive the colors depicted in the pic - mine are sliver with yellow graphics/text, but they look fine.
