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.

Used these on an 80 mile pct hike recently and they held up great. Very comfortable foam grips and padded wrist straps, made for safe travels on slippery granite slab trails. I tightened the clamp screws a little before i left, just to get a little more solid click out of them and i had zero issues. The aluminum lower shafts withstood repeated knocking on rocks. Overall they work well!

I was extremely disappointed to receive these poles-with no directions on how to use/adjust/put them together. All of which was implied to be included.
No information on what height they should be, for instance, or what the disks or clamps, etc were for. This being my first set of walking poles , i was so very excited to get them, and s very disappointed and baffled how to use these particular poles, even though i had done a fair amount of research before ordering them. Obviously on my part, not enough. Dampened any thoughts of placing future orders with STP.
