Rated 3 out of 5 by BDunk from Broken flick lock after using for 1 day Everything about these poles seems great - they’re stable, relatively light weight, cork grip, BUT I used the poles for a single day and already one of the plastic flick locks is broken. Incredibly poor design to be using such a fragile material on those. Now it is more difficult to lock / unlock that pole without the plastic cover and if this one already broke on day one, it’s likely inevitable for the others to break sooner or later.

Rated 3 out of 5 by white mtn hiker from broken flick lock clip for adjusting I received these as a gift for Christmas, and the first time I used them the plastic covering over the clip to adjust the height broke off. I sent them back for a replacement, and after only two more uses, the plastic covering has yet again broken off. As other reviewers have said, it makes changing the height very difficult without the plastic covering (hurts your fingers). Disappointed with this design, otherwise, poles are lightweight and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MUR1 from GOOD POLES BOUGHT THESE A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. POLES ARE LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO ADJUST. VERY COMFORTABLE CORK GRIPS. USED THEM IN PAGOSA SPRINGS CO AND WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THEM. ONLY COMPLAINT WOULD BE THEY DO NOT COLLAPSE MORE.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skullinator from Nice Poles I am not the typical user I am 65,and working to get in better shape. I got these to add some upper body and cardio workout to my daily walks. They also help with any balance issues I have on my walks. I use these every day, and after a week or so, my arms finally got over feeling like rubber bands after my walk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EasyK from Broken clip syndrome Great feel on hands, light, sturdy.....all great except for the clip. The broken clip syndrome is real. Yes, you can still use the poles but it’s harder to unlock. How such poor design passed product testing is beyond me. They did redesign this poor feature with the new model year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hntrrake from Great poles/poorly designed clips I would give 5 stars however I had the same issues as others with the plastic clips falling off. Bought two sets one for my wife and one for myself, we have each lost two of the clips already. This does not affect the poles from working correctly but is a minor eye sore and makes unlocking the clips slightly more difficult.
