Mountainsmith Monotrek Trekking Pole - Anti-Shock

Closeouts. Mountainsmith's Monotrek trekking pole pulls double duty on your hike by lending shock-absorbing support on rough trails and acting as a camera mount; just screw off the top grip to reveal a threaded bolt with locking ring.

    We haven't used this yet, but it looks good. I was a little disappointed it wasn't a pair, but that was my mistake when reading the description. Quality and price were good enough to keep a single pole.

    My wife has been using this type of pole for years and I expect to get lots of wear as well. Comfortable handle and the top comes off if you want to mount a camera. With most poles there is a tradeoff between price, sturdiness, and weight. I've come to believe that weight is the least important item. My expensive lightweight poles broke both at the handle and joint.

    This trekking pole doubles as a camera monopole with its camera mount hidden under the top grip. The pole is shock absorbing; however it is very sturdy when the pole sections are tightened. The pole is tall enough to bring the camera to eye level when shooting. There is a spike inside the bottom rubber foot for trekking on rough terrain.

    This walking stick is made perfectly. It has a soft handle with a convenient strap which make holding the stick very convenient. There is no pounding on my hands. It easily decreases and increases in length and tightens so there is no slippage. It allows me to walk very straight and stops my staggering. I love it.

    I really love my Monotrek Trekking Pole. Its very sturdy and reliable. The Anti-Shock feature makes me more confident, because it really absorbs the shock when I'm using it. I also like that its adjustable. Thank you so much!!!

    Lightweight and serviceable; squishy foam handle through and tips wear out VERY quickly so get extras if you are on rocky terrain

    The poles have worked well for me as I have been using them for stability and for mobility after moving away from a walker after spine surgery. The poles seems well made for lower priced poles (they have cheap handles). My main complaint is that the rubber tip wore out after 3 miles, and after contacting Mountainsmith customer service, he said that the rubber tips weren't made for hardwood floors (!!!) but to protect the carbide tips from damaging "floors, doors, and walls". I have used other poles where the rubber boot tip was very durable and made to be used on asphalt. These are found on the pricier Scandinavian brands. Mountainsmith's representative did offer to replace my chintzy tips which I will cover in ShoeGoo and he said that after many complaints they are going to be using new rubber boots in the future. BUY THE POLES but don't expect much out of the rubber tip!

    Got 2, trying to get more upper body exercise on my walks. Adjustable!, has a bit of give at the tip that moderates impact, handle is a soft foam type material.
