I like the construction as it avoids the tendency of telescopic poles that can slip to a shorter length when one's weight is suddenly applied. It also avoids the possibility of dirt and moisture getting within the upper sections of the pole.
Very good value.
I tested it out over about 3 miles of walking, on a variety of surfaces and conditions (tarmac road, stony path and deep mud on farm land), and it performed well, seemingly sturdy enough and with a comfortable handle.
I'd recommend though that users ensure that once the pole sections are (easily) slotted into position, they remember to give a full twist to each section of the pole to ensure they are all properly secured. I didn't do this on my first use of the pole and found that it came apart when the bottom section was held onto by a deep puddle of thick clay mud. Entirely my fault and, once fully tightened up as it was supposed to be, the pole behaved perfectly from then on. TIP: A way of checking it's assembled securely is to note whether it rattles or clicks as it comes down on the path. If it does, it needs tightening.
The only criticism I have, (and this is the only reason I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars), is, as a couple of other reviewers have mentioned, that the pole does not allow for adjustment to accommodate people of smaller stature. I am 5 ft 4.5 inches and found that the pole, even at its shortest length, was slightly too long for me. This means that sadly I won't be using it regularly after all, which is a shame because apart from that issue it seems pretty good and I'm otherwise happy with it. For my purposes it's great only for short walks, but I imagine other (taller) people will be satisfied with it.
The pack contains two each of three different types of tip, of which I chose to use the largest walking foot. It makes a tremendous difference to the feeling of security and balance. I use the poles around city streets and I would highly recommend these replacement tips/ferrules. Strong, firm but flexible and a good price.
I used just one pole a lot through my Peru adventure including Machu Picchu and the pole is going strong still at the end of it
Will probably need to use it if necessary during my visit to the Galápagos Islands next
Well suited to individual who needs a 150cm pole or longer.
In the end I ordered 4 - 2 each for my husband and myself. They got a try-out last weekend.
Brilliant - quick and easy to put up/take down - fit neatly into our small day-sacks - no more poles flapping around. Great value for money.
Mountains, here we come!
I saw these poles being used while trekking in Poland ( used by our leader) and thought they were a great idea.
These poles come in their individual bag and then fit into a larger bag - all supplied for the amazing price.
