TIP: get the rubber tips Black Diamond Trekking Pole Tip Protectors and duct tape them on, if you’re going on rock: much softer impact, and protects the rocks (fall off easily, so tape on).
These are light, comfortable, sturdy, easy to adjust (*very important* due to frequently changing terrain), and stylish.
Main reason to choose these over other Black Diamond ones are:
cork handles (comfortable, I prefer over foam, especially since cool in hot weather);
aluminum shafts (not carbon fiber), so sturdier (won’t shatter if hit) and only slightly heavier;
angled grip, which makes them better for walking, rather than strictly support.
These have fabulous features: wide top for palming during descent, foam grip for when you have a big step up, so you can shorten the effective length without needing to adjust it. These are top class poles.

The poles have three sections. As usual with walking poles, the lower sections slide inside the upper sections to allow adjustment of the length, and for storage. They come with a fitted pair of hard metal tips, and small baskets (to stop the pole sliding in to soft ground). There is a larger pair of baskets included, and you can also buy rubber tips,if you prefer.
Most walking poles have twist grips to control the sections. These poles have clips on each section, that are easy to open with a thumb. I find this type easier to use, but it probably depends on what you are used to using. The poles are marked with heights on each section, so it is easy to set them quickly to your preferred length. The left and right poles are clearly marked with a tag, and the hand loops are strong and comfortable.
The handles are tilted forward, which is where the 'ergo' for 'ergonomic' in their name comes from. I find them comfortable to use, and I like the tilted grip. The handles are made of cork. There is a slightly spongy foam section below the grip, and I find this handy for use on very steep slopes, without changing the length of the pole. Normally, if I am going up or down a slope, I just change the the length of the upper section of pole.
I've used these for a few weeks, and have walked about thirty miles with them, on a mixture of trails, hill paths, paved roads (for short sections) and open hillside. I've found them very good so far, and worth the price, in my opinion. I do find the clicking of the hard metal tips noticeable on hard surfaces. If I was walking exclusively on this type of surface, I would probably swap them for rubber tip ends. It's not practical to do this frequently, as the tips have a very firm fit and need a bit of time and effort to change (I use a pair of pliers, although stronger people might be able to do it with their grip strength alone).
I am very happy with these poles. They are more expensive than my previous poles, but the lightness, comfortable grip and flip locks make it worth the extra cost for me.
