Very light-weight, yet sturdy and durable as well. The ergonomic grip is comfortable and the extension for the rubber grip helps transfer of height differences for quick adjustments in terrain change. New "fricklock" system works well compared to Leki. These are my first pair of trekking poles and it has made a world of a difference.
Only complaint: the bottom part (including the mud basket and plastic cover) fell off when it was lodged in-between a tree root. Jammed it back on and it hasn't happened since.
