Leki Spin Nordic Walking Stick - Black, 100-130 cm

3.0 out of 5 stars Leki entry level adjustable aluminium poles, 17 April 2016
These Spin poles are fine if you're intending to walk up to 3 x 30-minutes a week to improve your general fitness level.

I have the "Speed Lock" version of these poles - they cost about £5-10 more; Speed Locks are quicker to adjust the length (and pinch your fingers in if you're not concentrating - I let out a few expletives today!); but that's the only improvement over these standard Spin poles.

Having just been out today for a test walk with both the Spin poles and the Instructor (Lite) poles, I recommend upgrading to the Instructor poles if you can afford an extra £20 as they are lighter and the swing is better; especially if you are going to take Nordic Walking to a more advanced level.
In comparison, the Spin poles are thicker and heavier by 61 grams per pole - this doesn't sound much but any extra weight will make the poles bouncy at the paw ends; Spin poles are aluminium (instead of carbon) shaft), rubber (instead of cork) grip, and have trigger 1 (instead of shark trigger) gloves.

I did a lot of research before I bought the Spin poles - I'm not disappointed - but am wondering whether I should have spent a bit more on the Instructor (Lite) poles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much gel padding, 17 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife used these gloves briefly for Nordic walking:
- very snazzy looking and good fit to size guide.
- not overly comfortable as they have very little gel padding.
- may be better for gym workouts - as the product title says.

For Cycling and Nordic walking I'd recommend Zookki Cycling Gloves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for Cycling and Nordic walking, 17 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only have good things to say about these cycling gloves:
- very light, stretchy and comfortable to wear.
- gel padding offers good protection from handlebar shocks and vibrations.
- ventilated area works well to avoid sweaty hands.
- sizing chart accurate - normally medium for me, but sizing chart indicated large so that's what I ordered and it was right.
- recommended - my wife was instantly impressed and bought herself a medium-sized pair as well for Nordic walking.

3.0 out of 5 stars An acquired taste?, 11 April 2016
A distinctive smell but forgetable taste. To me it seems to be over-roasted giving it an unpleasant ashtray effect. I was hoping for a strong espresso like coffee but it didn't hit the spot for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, 5 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leki Speed Lock Spin (Misc.)
For an extra £15 the Leki "Instructor" poles (or the new "Lite" version) are noticeably better than these Leki "Spin Speed Lock" poles.

In comparison the Spin poles are heavier and bulkier by 61 grams per pole; aluminium instead of carbon shaft; larger lumpy spin lock; inferior rubber grip instead of cork and fiddly glove trigger 1 instead of shark trigger system.

For the sake of £15 I strongly recommend upgrading to the Instructor poles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 27 Feb. 2016
Our cats love these. As soon as the trees were assembled the cats had a scratch on the posts and climbed on board and curled up for a nap. We put the beds next to the wall radiators to make them extra cosy, but it doesn't seem to matter where we put these beds as the cats seek them out. The hammocks are a good size for medium-sized cats of about 5 kg in weight. Highly recommended. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep all your accessories together, 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's like the official TomTom Heavy Duty Travel Case (£24.99) but without the TomTom logo and zip:
- hard shell casing protects device from bumps and scratches. :)
- keeps device and all accessories together. :)
- black outer case and red soft touch lining are good quality. :)

For example:
- TomTom GO 5000 Device
- Click & GO Mount
- Car Charger & USB Cable
- Documentation
- Dashboard Mount Disk, Travel/Home Charger, Connect Cable and microSDHC card+adapter.

2.0 out of 5 stars A soft gimmicky pouch, 5 Feb. 2016
The pouch is just about big enough to take a TomTom GO 5000. The neoprene material feels like a spongy gamers mouse mat. The pouch protects the display screen against scratches but nothing more. For some reason it has two zips instead of one.

For just another £3 you can get a bigger Hard Case which offers better protection and will hold everything in one place:
- TomTom GO 5000 Device,
- Click & GO Mount,
- Car Charger & USB Cable,
- Documentation.

This review is from: JML Cat's Meow (Misc.)
Both my cats treat it with caution. It's noisy. They don't play with it. Complete waste of money.
