    I am not a typical hiker. I'm a 60 year woman with numerous orthopedic issues who likes to walk on the asphalt nature paths close to my home. With a knee due for replacement and degenerative lumbar discs, I need all the help I can get with stability. These poles do the trick. I'm less than 5' tall and shrinking. The pole lengths are completely adjustable and they weigh less than 10 ounces each with the optional Leki rubber tips installed and the basket removed. They are perfect for me!

    Very good design, very light

    Pro: Speed-lock (YouTube - to learn how to adjust it, for safety.)
    Pro: Shape of grip-handle
    Pro: Versatility to use at walking-stick height or collapse to cane-height of lower.

    Con: It is NOT the anti-shock version. (Which is why I returned it.)

    I've used earlier model of this for several years.

    When this arrived, and didn't seem to be the b familiar anti-shock, I contacted STP & LEKI. LEKI helped me understand that THIS one is NOT anti-shock, but there is another one (with this grip) now with both anti-shock and speed-lock. LEKI advised that if I'm already accustomed to the anti-shock and if it works for me (people have varying preferences) - to not keep this.

    disappointed that STP hasn't corrected info in the description, especially add they had many interactions with me, in resolving the anti-shock issue.

    If you don't need/want anti-shock, it's 4.5 stars. Small deduction because handle can break (but repairable).

    Now, STP has similar+gripped Kompetdell - with anti-shock, but without the free-kick (& need to get own rubber tip, if for urban use).

    Hope this helps.

    It is great for price and production. I did the hiking yesterday and fell comfortable than Cristallo without anti-shock. It is solid material and easy to adjust.

    After severe knee pain during my last hiking adventure I knew I needed to make a change or stop hiking. After researching various trekking poles I decided to spend the "big bucks" and go for the LEKIs. I had no idea what a difference poles would make and these poles were extremely light and durable. Adjusting was easy. Only one time did the pole slip and I had to tighten the clamp mechanism in order to keep it secure. No big deal....Hiked 8.5 miles some flat ground but quite a bit of elevation as well. I cant wait to hike again with these poles!!!
