“Son is 6'9, about 225 would these work for him?”

Asked by Mom of tall son from VA on 11/14/2016 2:44:39 PM
  • I am not sure. These poles are 135 cm max.
    You can try to measure or estimate the length between your son elbow and ground.

  • I absolutely love these poles and they work for me but I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs. I don't believe they would be a good fit for someone as tall and heavy as your son. At the maximum extension the length is 53" but they become less ridged fully extended and tend to bend with weight. Also, the handles fit my small hand perfectly so they may not be comfortable for him. Sorry but I wouldn't recommend them for him.
