    Broke on first excursion

    Used these for the first time this weekend. Worked well whilst out but on return I couldn't get one to retract again as the button seemed stick. Eventually managed to push the button in but it went too far and is now stuck inside the inner pole which renders the pole useless. Can't recommend when things go wrong after one use.

    Simple and strong walking sticks good value

    Easy to use like an old fashioned tent pole with buttons. Very light but with a good size diameter shaft to maintain stiffness. The only flaw I can see longterm is there is no way of adjusting the friction which keeps the pole compacted. A couple of times the pole extended itself while attached to my rucksack. Given how cheap the pole are, its probably worth sorting some DIY solution with 50p worth of shockcord

    Fatally Flawed

    Generally these are sturdy, lightweight for the price, easy to extend with gloves on and comfortable. almost perfect. Almost...
    However there is a fatal flaw that I'm flabbergasted never came out in development or other peoples reviews. When extended, the top tube is hollow with many open holes (the adjustment positions) and in decent winds, these poles perform like a flute. They are so noisy, whistling and wailing as you move. Funny for the first 10 minutes, but truly awful after that. Not sure yet if I can be bothered to return them for how much they cost, but i'd avoid these at all costs for that reason.

Features

How to adjust your walking poles?
Hold the poles with your arms bent at a right angle. To adjust them: unscrew the middle section beneath the ring of the lower section, adjust to desired height (in cm), and screw back on firmly but not too tight. Do the same thing with the lower section. NEVER GO OVER THE "STOP LINE", or the pole may break during use.
Directions for use:
Before leaving: always check that your poles are well tightened. When descending, or during when pushing forward on the mountain, for example, you can make your poles longer. When walking downhill, it's best to remove the strap so the pole won't get in your way if you fall.
Accessories
Comes with a summer hiking (small diameter) unscrewable stopper. Compatible with wider winter stoppers.
