Love these poles, just wish they were a bit easier to adjust.

These poles instill confidence on the trail...have used them for about 15 miles so far on variety of terrain from smooth and easy to steep with nasty cobbles (Metacomet Trail in CT). Very light and quiet. I like the new shape of the grips, can be used with different hand positions. My only complaint is the tightening mechanisms - it requires twice as many turns as my old Komperdell poles, and it's hard to sense when they are fully tight, so i just count 8 or 9 turns to fully tighten or loosen. once set i don't feel a need to adjust them; I just lean on the top of the wide axis of the grips on a steep downhill.
