Rated 3 out of 5 by owen from I LIKE these poles... Very light, easy to use (duh, fixed length), but there's a couple points to consider: + Weight! feathery and "reasonable cost" (see helio pole for perspective) - FRAGILE! I broke a pole while teaching an avy class... not good BD. - Baskets are useless in lighter snow conditions. This is a good problem to have off course, but it'd be nice if they came with the bigger baskets

Rated 5 out of 5 by Miguel from Swing weight...what's that? As an inveterate consumer of cheap aluminum poles I reluctantly broke down and threw a wad of cash at these carbon wands after snapping an aluminium pole plunged in rime ice high on Mt. Hood last spring. These poles might snap under the same circumstances but I plan not to find out. The baskets are easy to swap and make these great for off piste and on, hardpack and fluff. I've skied 5 on piste and 7 off with these this season and am happy as a pig in you know what.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joshua from Great poles- very lightweight I was shocked at how lightweight these poles are. coming from another brands carbon fiber poles, these surprised me at how lightweight they are. The 2 sets of baskets (large and small) are a nice option not always offered by other brands as well. I've used them a half dozen times so far and I am quite pleased.
