Here's what other sites are saying:
The lightest pole on the market at 7.7 oz per hand, the Men's C3 Duolock Trekking Poles from Komperdell are shorter in length and feature a grip that is slimmer and more comfortable for women or men with smaller hands. The carbon fiber shafts of the C3 Carbon Duo Lock Compact are slim, lightweight and strong.

Carbon Fiber Treking Pole * from Chris McMaster - ULA-Equipment: Owner & Operator, "I am a pole snob, I have an extensive background in cross country skiing where poles are an vital link in the whole process. Most poles are heavy, poorly constructed, bend or break easily and have a gimmicky strap setup, so I was very pleasantly surprised to discover the Komperdell Carbon Ultralight Treking Pole series. Komperdell's Carbon Poles are stiff , light, and have a great swing weight (the heaviest part is closest to your hand). Another key feature is the sensible and comfortable strap. I haven't seen any better anywhere at any price." * Standard Features: * 100% Carbon * DUOLOCK (TM) adjusting mechanism * STOP LOCK braking system * EVA Foam Grip * KOMPERDELL neoprene strap * AIRSHOCK (TM) cushioning system only in some models * Tungsten / carbide flex-tip.
