Re: Re: The Frankenstein MLD Exodus/Arc Blast with custom features .....perfect pack?

Re: The Frankenstein MLD Exodus/Arc Blast with custom features .....perfect pack?

Re: Re: GG Trek Poles
I've broken one in the time it took me to wear out two sets of pole tips (2000 miles?). I did the same thing, stumbled and the pole broke when I leaned on it wrong. But if you're careful wi...
