I'm not big, 150#.
I take care of my stuff and generally recognize the limits of UL gear.
The first break, the upper section, was caused when I fell on the pole when it was bridged between 2 rocks. No pole would have withstood that without damage.
The second break, the lower section, happened when the tip got caught in a hole. I believe my GG poles would have survived that no problem.
I use section poles for summit attempts in the Rockies.
TI Goat poles are highly praised on this website. I believe they are good poles. They just are not working for my use.
