Light, secure, easy to adjust. Worth the money

These are fantastic, near top of the line Leki trekking poles. I was dubious of the anti-shock, thinking it might be distracting or contribute to instability when on difficult passes or traverses. Not so! Leki nailed it with these poles. Light, secure, easy to adjust on the fly so you actually adjust during the hike! I am athletic, but years of competition has left my knees a bit delicate. Hiking with these poles allows me to go on strenuous all day hikes on varied terrain and not suffer for it. Proper technique coupled with these great poles...wonderful! These are an investment, but the price here at STP is great, and these will last you a lifetime. Leki has great instructional videos on how to disassemble the poles, etc. I travel quite a bit, and have to disassemble to fit them in my luggage. Go for it. When it comes to trekking poles, don't skimp. You gain walking 4WD, and makes ascent and descent so much easier, safer, and faster.
