Here's what other sites are saying:

Lightweight and rattle-resistant, the REI Relief Shocklight trekking poles supply support and stability without disturbing the peace. Shocklight shock absorbers weigh less than common spring-loaded poles and won't rattle within the shaft as you walk. Shock-absorbent poles reduce fatigue and improve stability; lockout mechanism creates a rigid pole when needed for more efficient climbing. Strong internal twist-lock mechanisms apply a wide area of pressure against pole walls to lock in length adjustment. Reliable twist locks enhance stability and make length adjustments easy. With the Stop Lock system, poles won't come apart; system makes the pole sections into 1 unit for security and stability. Made from Titanal aluminum for durability; Titanal aluminum is 1 of the strongest aluminum alloys around and offers mechanical properties comparable to steel. 3-section telescoping poles extend to a maximum length of 55 in. for use and compact to 29 in. for easy storage and transport. Foam grips with an ergonomic, contoured shape are easy to hold; adjustable padded neoprene wrist straps add support. Extended grip length allows pole to be held low during short side hill traverses. Fitted with trekking discs and extra-durable tungsten carbide tips; included tip protectors are strictly for travel/packing protection, not intended for hiking.
