This pole replaced a Leki pole that had only a round wood ball for a handle. It would get too hot and didn't offer varied ways to grip it in order to rest the hand. I like this handle the best of all I have tried. Pole is very light weight, yet strong, and the cane style grip is great. The cork doesn't get hot like the wood. The shock absorber feature is nice but unnecessary.
