Good Poles, Bad Baskets

Reviewed by Hacking Jack Dacks from Adirondacks on Thursday, December 23, 2010
These poles seemed like a great deal until the first hour into a backpacking trip when both baskets kept falling off. Finally lost them 2 hours in and these poles became almost useless. Screw-on assembly is not effective and no amount of tightening will keep them on. I am hoping to get free replacement baskets (from the post) that I will glue on permanently.
