After doing a fair amount of research, I decided on purchasing the Sierra Stix trekking poles. Their specifications are comparable with other trekking poles that cost twice as much. When I received the poles, I really liked them. They were what I expected with the weight, adjustment capabilities, shock absorber, etc. However, after hiking only 25 miles with them they have failed in multiple locations. The locking mechanism quit working entirely in one of the poles. No amount of twisting will release the locking mechanism. Fortunately the locking mechanism broke in such a way that the poles are stuck in the extended position enabling me to finish my hike with them. Also, the metal tip on one of the poles broke off in the course of the hike and the tip on the other pole has completely worn down. I expect some degree of wear on the metal tips, however, being worn completely down over the course of 25 miles is not acceptable. In an effort to save on cost, I'm sure that the manufactures used a cheaper unhardened steel that is not designed to last under hiking conditions. The trails that I hike on are mostly soft dirt with occasional rock fields -- typical mountain hiking conditions. While these poles look good on paper, they are not designed to actually be used as trekking poles. A couple other small complaints about the poles: the buckles for the wrist straps slip requiring constant readjustment throughout the hike, and the buckles are located in a very inconvenient location where they sit uncomfortably on the wrists. In summary, I would not recommend these poles to anyone who intends to hike more than 25 miles with them.

I have used these trekking poles in the Cascades of Oregon and Washington and most recently during my climb of Guadalupe Peak in Texas.

They have performed without fail in every aspect and they offer a quality product at an excellent value.

I have recurring mobility issues, and often use an assistive device for better balance and more confidence when I walk. In fact, I am just getting back to walking after an extended wheelchair stint, so I haven't used the new Sierra poles very hard.

The Sierra Stix are very similar in construction to my old set (down to the exact shape of the handles) but seem to be of better construction. There's a bit more heft to these, but they are certainly not heavy. The Sierra poles don't flex as much as the old ones, and that's a good thing; I'm a big guy, and when there's too much "give", I fear that they're going to suddenly bend or break.

A brief note about adjustment technique would have been a good inclusion in the package. It's the same simple mechanism that is used on my old set but, over time, I'd forgotten how to do it. I finally stumbled upon the extremely simple way to loosen and tighten them.

I certainly can't comment on their suitability for rough terrain or for serious hikers, but the Sierra Stix are more than adequate for my needs.
