Recent Antishock Trekking Pole Reviews

Mountainsmith Pinnacle Trekking Poles

rated 4 of 5 stars For the money you can't go wrong! These poles were a last minute buy. I had no intention of even using poles until a friend of mine asked if I had bought poles for my first backpacking trip. Not knowing if I really wanted or needed them I picked them up really cheap and boy am I glad I did. These poles are great! Very tough. I really abused them.I will eventually upgrade to something with a cork grip but for the time being these poles will be in my hand for many more years. Full review

Leki Men's Micro Vario Carbon DDS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Leki's Micro Vario Carbon are antishock poles that exceed anything else with which this user has ever hiked. While not ultra-light, the comfort, weight, and quality more than make up for the few extra ounces. A limited range of height stands out as the chief con to an otherwise excellent product. As a middle-aged man with osteoarthritis in both knees, trekking poles have become an essential for my continued enjoyment of the outdoors. The Leki Micro Vario Carbon are the fourth brand of trekking… Full review

Komperdell Shockmaster

rated 5 of 5 stars Very nice poles for beginners...well within the price range for good equipment. Bought these as my first pair of poles and have found them to be quite good and a non-expensive way to break into the use of trekking poles. Full review

Black Diamond Trail Pro Shock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Four years old and still going strong. I have had a pair of these poles for four years now and as I get farther away from 50 I use them more and more. They break down to the length of my pack. The shock system looks look it will never wear out unlike the old Leki system. They lock up tight and you just need to tighten a small screw if not, unlike the old twist system on the old Leki. I have also had to 2-hand these poles when sliding down an avi slope still filled with snow. The straps are wide… Full review

REI Traverse Shocklight

rated 4 of 5 stars I took a pair of REI Traverse Shocklight Trekking Poles end-to-end on the Long Trail in Vermont. One pole went the distance! I have backpacked extensively in Canada and the western United States and never used trekking poles. My wife insisted that I take them on the Long Trail. She was right!! The Long Trail is a steady diet of roots and rocks, up and down. Much of the Long Trail was blazed without the benefit of switchbacks. The trail very often is a stream bed. When you are lucky, the stream bed… Full review

Outdoor Products Trekking Pole Set

rated 2 of 5 stars I bought this set to see if I prefer them over my staff. I liked the price. The shock absorbers are a plus. This is a good beginner set. I have never used trekking poles before. I bought this set at WalMart to see if I would like them. They seemed to work OK. I tried this set out at a prvate college trail system. The handles are hard plastic and after two miles rubbed a hot spot on my hands. They worked good at stream crossing and poorly on slick rock. A good friend is on his third set of this brand.

Mountainsmith Carbonlite Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Sturdy trekking poles with lockout-able shock absorbers and great cork grips. What's not to like? Mountain goats don't tackle mountains on two legs; why should you? Best For: People who like good trekking poles. Design The Mountainsmith Carbonlites Pros are three-piece, telescoping poles built for rigorous use. The diameter of the sections is greater than many of the more lightweight options, and this allows a higher user weight limit. The sections can be completely disassembled for cleaning and… Full review

Wilcor Trekking Poles

rated 5 of 5 stars Hiking/trekking poles, shock absorbing. Exceptional hiking/trekking poles.  Aluminum construction Three section, twist to unlock, extend, and lock. VERY good lock. I'm 200+ pounds and the locks have never failed on me.  Infinite length adjustment (you're not limited to pre-made detents) out to almost 4 feet. I use the wrist straps most when pushing up difficult terrain. The straps are also very secure and the lock on those has never failed either. The shock absorbers are also very handy in some… Full review

Komperdell Men's C3 Airshock

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I like them. Low shock, strong, light, fully disassemble to pack nicely. I liked mine enough to get two pairs just in case they were discontinued. The problem with locking is very easy to fix. Pull the plastic collar toward the pole tip to expose the joint.  Pull the lower section out and wipe away any dust and grit with a clean damp cloth. Insert the expanding bolt/joint 80% back into the larger section and twist-tighten the expansion bolt until it is almost too tight inside the larger section… Full review
