Excellent trekking pole at a can't beat price

I was looking for a lighter trekking pole for backpacking. I have BD carbon poles with an oval cross section and they are stiff and damp quickly but are a bit too heavy. I've tried light carbon poles and they "ring" each time they strike the ground. The Cork Z pole is nearly equivalent in weight to the carbon poles but does not ring as much. The cork handle is way nicer than the foam grips of most poles.
