I just spent a week in the White Mountains using these poles and I cannot say enough good things about them! I've never hiked with poles before, so some of this praise is more about the product category than this specific item. I'm in my late 40s and I really was surprised by how poles help ease the strain on one's knees and legs. I found the poles especially helpful in maintaining balance as my backpack "sail" blew around Mt. Washington and Mt. Eisenhower. The Komperdell cork handles are fabulous to grip (I would have loathed a plastic handle in that wet environment) and the fully extended poles worked well for my 6' 6" frame. I highly recommend this product.
