CAUTION - Decent poles, poor tips!

Reviewed by Pauly D from Alabama on Monday, August 8, 2016
The poles have worked well for me as I have been using them for stability and for mobility after moving away from a walker after spine surgery. The poles seems well made for lower priced poles (they have cheap handles). My main complaint is that the rubber tip wore out after 3 miles, and after contacting Mountainsmith customer service, he said that the rubber tips weren't made for hardwood floors (!!!) but to protect the carbide tips from damaging "floors, doors, and walls". I have used other poles where the rubber boot tip was very durable and made to be used on asphalt. These are found on the pricier Scandinavian brands. Mountainsmith's representative did offer to replace my chintzy tips which I will cover in ShoeGoo and he said that after many complaints they are going to be using new rubber boots in the future. BUY THE POLES but don't expect much out of the rubber tip!
