$20 dollar no holler! You can't beat the price for the quality you get.

Planned on hiking on the cheap and picked these things up. After extensive backcountry use and abuse, I am pleasantly surprised. They held up to everything I threw at them. They carried my weight plus 45 pound pack with no problems. I did not experience any failed locks like the others.

All in all, you get what you pay for...

I received these poles as a gift and am glad I did not actually buy them. I was immediately displeased with them once I got them home. At that time one of the end pieces fell off. I then super glued them on both poles.

On my first hike using them I was pleased with how tight the telescopic locking mechanism held. I was able to lift my whole body (pack included) off the ground with out the poles collapsing. That said, once I started using them they kept switching back and forth from shock absorbing to lock out every few feet. This made them very annoying. Then a few miles down the trail the sand/snow cups fell off and I lost them.

Additionally, the metal tips they used must have been made of lead because after a few miles they were mushroomed almost flat.
