Great for the money

I bought these for a hiking trip I was planning. I had them less than a week when I took them on a 3 day, 20 mile trip. They functioned well out of the box. The rubber or metal tips both gripped well on the rocky trail. The poles adjusted well (I err'd on the side of not tight enough since others had complained of overtightening). Even so, I put substantial weight on them bending down to filter water and standing back up with no slippage.

The only thing I would consider a downside is that the grips are rubber instead of cork. This wasn't a big deal until it got hot on the first day and my hands started to slip/slide on the grips. On day 2 it rained for most of the day which created a similar problem.
