Thanks Bill!

Great Review.

The earlier shocks serve the purpose well, but the New soft shocks are much less obtrusive, don't squeek, or rebound (noticably).

They Do absorb a lot of impact and cut down on the skittering on rock.

I find the Aergon grip to be fantastic. Try it, you will give your older poles away!

The Speedlock will be great..for the non shock crowd..until Leki figures out a real shock system for an external rubber bumpers please..

Thanks for your time and attention.

Take your poles hiking regularly, they like it!
