These poles are great - easy to adjust, lightweight, and strong. I thought I'd broken one when I fell off the mountain on my trek to Machu Picchu (I was saved by the guide with me). On the way down, I could feel that the pole was caught between some rocks and I felt it bend. I was sure it was broken (or lost down the mountain), but it survived the fall as did I. My guide liked the poles so much, he asked to buy them. I figured that he had saved my life so he deserved the poles and I gave them to him. Now I need to get another pair for myself.
