Do the trick

This is the first pair of trekking poles I've purchased. I've put about 30 miles on them and so far I really like them. I've suffered from chronic knee issues for years, but proper use of poles has really made a difference. The cork handles are nice. Even while gaining 1000+ feet per mile in 98 degree heat they never felt slimy, slick or sweaty. I'd never used shock absorbing poles before, but I haven't felt much of a difference yet... Maybe if I had a full pack.
