Heavy poles but also the long – both in terms of walking length and pack-down length. They are also very strong. The cork handles feel good in the hand and the straps are easily adjusted and well-padded. The anti-shock mechanism feels good in action but can be switched on and off easily by accident. Another excellent low-priced anti-shock offering.
