    I have not yet tried these out. I bought them because I am planning on hiking a trail to a summit that has some rapid elevation gains. Trekking poles are very useful on those steep inclines. I chose these with the power lock adjustments because I had a bad experience with the twist lock type. That kind broke on the first use because my husband overtightened one and now we can't loosen it up to adjust it. I tried out the power locks and they are easy to use and appear reliable. The true test will be when I try them out on the trail.

    One thing that was weird was that these poles only came with one snow basket. Not sure why there was not two, because it is a set of two poles.

    Lost my rubber tips for my Komperdell poles after a winter of skiing and a move. They fit like a glove! We took took a chance and bought two---they also are universal enough to fit on my husband's black diamond trekking poles as well. Trusty replacements! Will buy again!

    I bought a set of these poles earlier this year. My husband liked them , so I purchased a set for him in August. We are day hikers and they are perfect for us. We particularly like the easy to use snap locks for extending the poles. They are easy to transport in their collapsed state. Then you can extend them quickly when you reach. the trail . Happy trails!

    These tips work well once they are in place, but they are a real wrestling match to put onto the poles I ordered. In fact I couldn't even get the second one to begin to fit onto the pole. I asked my husband to help with it, and his solution was to force it on by pounding the bottom of the pole down onto the floor. Now the pole is broken. I guess I'd like tips that have just a bit more flexibility. I'm not a trekker. I have trouble with my back and the poles are a great help when I walk. So I like the tips added to provide more stability.

    A perfect travel set of hiking poles since they fold up to fit in ones case. They are very strong and feel the same as a solid pole. Certainly better than was expected since they are llight weight and fold ..... could save knee!

    I hiked the Chilkoot Trail last month (July) with these exact poles. I have bad knees, and my sister-in-law had foot surgery in January. We each used a pole and they were FANTASTIC!!! We will never hike without trekking poles ever again! They were a huge help for the boulders, mud, snow and river crossings!

    Bought a few different poles, looking for some for our neighbor who is having trouble getting around. The cork handles, the 'click' for the locking mechanism is great. What a nice change from the older "twist, twist is it locked?" They feel very sturdy when extended. The lime green is bright!

    This is my first set of hiking poles and I am only trying these to help with aging knee problems on steep uphill and downhill sections of trail. I selected these poles due to their light weight and since they fold into a compact size to fit into a pack when I am not using them. They indeed meet these criteria. One thing to note is these poles only have 1 adjustable joint for length adjustments. With a Komperdell trekking tip attached, their shortest length is about 40 inches. On steep uphills, this may be a little longer than ideal for me (I am 5'3"). I believe with poles that have 3 sections for adjustment, you could get a shorter overall length. The shock-corded joints are pretty tight, so I don't think they will come undone if the poles get stuck down in snow, mud or between rocks, but time will tell on that. At this point with limited use, I am satisfied with the quality of the poles and appreciate their ultra-lite weight.

    I'm completely sold on trail running with these now. Using poles on very steep ascents takes a noticeable amount of stress off your legs and back once you get your technique down. They're light weight as well so I don't mind running with them in hand on the descents. Shock absorbing feature provides sort of a reflex bounce as you come out of planting the pole on ascents which feels almost like an extra boost (surely mental but I like it). Highly recommend them.
