Not sure about these

I normally do not use poles for hiking but for the price decided to give these a try with snoeshoes. I had a hard time gripping the small end of the pole in order to twist and adjust, especially with gloves on. Baskets on both poles pulled off when using in the snow but fortunately each time I noticed immediately and was able retreive them and screw back on. I'll try to find a spare set if I plan to depend on these for long distance treks. I like the fact they collapse so small making them easy to carry on the sides of my pack.
