Hey Steve, sorry man, I think im gonna keep my current aluminum Leki's. After seeing all these LT4's breaking, i'll probably use these new ones for groomed trails, and my leki's for mountaineering and other more technical things.
That being said, steepandcheap has been selling my soon-to-be- old poles for 50% off. They are Leki Coretec Super Makalu's with anti-shock. They are kinda hefty, and the antishock is kinda gimmicky, but its still a pretty good price for pretty robust poles.
