I'm sure more expensive poles are lighter and have... 'features', but as an entry into the world of trekking poles - they're absolutely fantastic. Solid build, very comfortable to hold, reliable (pole length didn't slip out of position), easy to pack down and carry with being two-part not three. Since buying these poles I've compiled a list of hills and mountains to climb over the coming months. Normally I'd probably do two or three trips a year but the difference they make, especially on tricky descents is astonishing. Steel tips look untouched after doing Cnicht in Wales, which I'd highly recommend by-the-way. Great delivery from Amazon, on-time and well packaged. For the money, you can't go wrong. So they get 5 stars.

I bought these based on brand and (mainly) price - ie they were cheap. The reason for the price was that they are pink and noone wants pink poles - apart from me! They work perfectly - just as good as pole costing twice as much (which I also have) If ever I lose one or damage it I will definitely get the same again - if I can find them!

The poles were easy to put together and are very light but strong. I am unsteady on my feet when out walking and the poles have excelled at keeping me on the straight and narrow. I wish I had got then 20 years ago, they realy do help.

The poles did all that one expected of them. The instructions on the barrel are ambiguous. The user is told to twist the poles
in a certain direction to extend or lock.
The trouble was that it was not made clear that it's the inner shaft that turns in the direction shown by the arrows.
Because the arrows, etc. are on the barrel the temptation is to to think that it is the barrel that turns. At first I almost unscrewed the whole darn thing before finding out.
As aids to walking up or down the fells the poles are fine.

cheapest i could find and they do the job. telescopic in 2 parts not 3 so still quite long even when at their shortest. material seems sturdy and i've used them quite a few times now. the anti shock mechanism rattles a bit as you walk which is a bit annoying but all in all does what it says on the tin.

They came the next day. This was great, since one of my old poles had got washed away in a river in flood. They were very cheap for poles and so far have been excellent

There poles do the job rather good but could be much better.

The suspension system is not really working if you're putting considerable pressure on them as they tumble and you are at risk of losing your balance.
Thank god i prefer them locked anyway so this doesn't bother me.

The tip is wearing out really fast on uneven ground,but not a problem for me yet.Would be nicer to include an extra pair of those plastic tips.

The color wear's out fast too.

However,the best part of these poles is the adjustable hand strap.It really helps out a lot holding tight the grip and supporting good around your wrist in a way that you may push hard down if you carry a lot of weight and taking some of the strain out of your knees and legs generally.Too bad,the construction below that and especially the anti-shock mechanism isn't so good.

I use for ordinary hill walking and find just the one pole enough. Very pleased with the purchase.
