We bought two pairs of the older Komperdell carbon poles from Sierra Trading Post. One twist-lock failed recently, so we ordered this as replacement.

I recently returned from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in which I used these poles constantly, climbing desert trails, negotiating cobbled streets, and ascending countless stairs. I have a bad hip, and these poles made it possible for me to go 'farther, faster' than I possibly could have managed without them. They are strong (I'm a big guy, and sometimes put a *lot* of weight onto a single pole), very light weight, and the locks are positive and secure. I can't praise them enough. Some will wonder about choosing between these lighter-weight, rigid poles and heavier, spring-loaded styles. In two weeks of intense use, I never experienced wrist or elbow pain using them -- just adjust your straps properly, and you're good to go. Buy these!

Finally got a pair of Trekking Poles and very happy with the quality fo them. They are well made and very light. Like the power locking system compared to the twist and turn type that my kids have. I would actually like to get them a pair like this.....maybe for Christmas!
