Price is unbelievable
Telescopic for adjusting height or traveling
I like the shock-absorbing feature
Cons: Difficult to twist open if you don't have a strong grip or if you have arthritis in your hands
I have used them so far on flat hikes and hilly hikes on dirt fire roads. I read about nordic walking and fitness walking for burning extra calories and wanted to do it but everyone makes it sound so complicated I just use them like cross-country ski poles instead of worrying about it and that seems to work well. I sweat a lot more than I do when not using them. I also use them for support since I haven't been able to walk down any grade to speak of since injuring my knee a few months ago because if I tried, the pain would be back. If I were looking for a pole for ONLY the purpose of supporting that knee, I would get something like a cane, designed to put your weight straight down on, because it's hard on your hands after a while to use poles not designed for that. But the poles are plenty strong when using two at a time. The instructions say not to use the stick to support your weight so I wouldn't try it with only one. I essentially use them a little like crutches to take a bit of the weight off the injured knee on downhills. All in all a ridiculous value especially when compared to other brands.
Update May 2011: I haven't used these as much as I should :-) but with occasional use they are still holding up well.Read more ›
There is one tiny flaw, the compass, it doesn't work very well. If you just need a walking stick this is awesome, but if u want the compass then this is not the stick for you.
All in all, this is a very nice walking aid, and it is a LOT better looking than a mop handle (and a LOT less embarrassing).
