User Review: Mountainsmith Rhyolite 6061
Source: bought it new
Lightweight and fragile.
- Light weight
- Easy adjustment
- Bend easily
These poles work fine for light walking and hiking. Definitely not built to withstand any abuse. One of my poles bent on my second trip with these; I was descending a steep ridge and put a little pressure (not really all that much) on the pole and it bent on the lower section.
However, as long as you don't use them for skiing or rough, off-trail use you should be ok.
