In the Beginner section there is a new guy in Minnesota getting some advice.
I didn't want to derail his thread so I figured it might be good to ask my question in a new thread.
I'm one of those people who started using Trekking Poles and am absolutely sold on them as a useful bit of kit that is virtually indispensable. Can't even imagine a day hike without using them anymore. Heck if my wife would let me, I'd use them at the shopping mall when she drags me out on the once annual visit I'm forced to make.
But I'm curious, have any of you folks tried them, and then STOPPED using them? If so, why?
Who has never tried them?
