Great Value. Sharp Color

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Deal Hunter from Clifton Park, NY on Wednesday, March 2, 2011
Mountainsmith makes quality outdoor products. These poles live up to their high standards. The blue color is sharp and will be very visible if dropped in the snow. The poles are very sturdy and easy to adjust. They have a shock mechanism at the tip with lockout for "added cushion". I could probably do without that feature. The poles are a little heavier than expected. I would probably not use them to hike up a mountain, but they are great for recreational snowshoeing. The grips are hard plastic like ski poles and a good source of the weight. Cork grips are typically better for hiking. Overall, a great pole for recreational snowshoeing.
