great poles for the price

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cricket from Columbus, OH on Tuesday, March 22, 2011
I have purchased two sets of these poles over the years and have taken them on many backpacking trips, including long stints on th AT. They hold up very well, work as designed, and are about 1/3 to 1/4 of the price of the more expensive brands. I have been out with friends who have bent their lekis so bad they were unusable but have never run into an issue with these mountainsmiths. I am giving them Aaron four because there are lighter and more comfortable poles out there, but nowhere near this pricepoint.
