    Recieved poles, one clamp was missing so I had to send them back. No padding on wrist straps. Decent poles for the money. Reordered the pure carbon versions of these and had great luck with them. Nice padded wrist straps and locks held up really well with extended abuse on the PCT

    I have never had locking poles before I purchased them because I bought a lightweight tent that uses poles and the locking mechanism makes it easier to adjust. I have done a couple hikes with them and like them. Easy to adjust and easy to tweak the tightness with a phillips head screwdriver.

    Worked perfectly. Saved my butt many times on my last hiking adventure.

    Having only used them once and it being my first trek with poles I have to say I would go with the cork handles next time. I forced myself to use them all the time on my 25+ miles in the grand canyon and really noticed the load sharing and stability on that last climb back to the rim.

    The lock was loose on when these arrived, and the poles broke the first time I tried to use them on a very moderate trail. Returning for Black Diamond poles.

    This is the second pair of the Komperdell Trailmaster PowerLock trekking poles that I have purchased and given the price find them to be excellent.

    I weigh around 150 pounds (70 kgs) and the adjustment mechanism always holds firm. The only negative is that the hand cord soon becomes twisted, but this is a minor annoyance.

    Power lock is convenient, simple and works great. The sturdy poles are easily adjustable which makes for easy stowing when not needed.

    I've hiked on these in the White mountains of NH and Western Maine for the past two seasons. I snowshoe with them. They never have an issue. I keep seeing people in these reviews complain about the locking mechanism failing them. I hope they realize that the tension is adjustable with a Phillips head screwdriver. Mine have never needed adjusting.

    I'd love to use carbon poles, but where I hike they never last. I can't tell you how many granite holes I would have snapped a set of carbons that these Komperdells simply bounce out of. They aren't the lightest, but at 17oz for the pair w/o straps or baskets they certainly aren't boat anchors. I plan on ordering another pair in cork when I get another great coupon from STP. Buy them and abuse them, they can take it.

    I used these poles twice, both times hiking. Both poles keep collapsing despite repeated attempts to tighten the "power lock". It's extremely frustrating and I'm hoping I can return.
