Yana Trekking Poles on 08/15/2012 01:46:01 MDT Print View

Anyone have experience with these? I've been using the GG LT4's, which are great, but they aren't compact enough for attaching to my pack when scrambling. The 3 piece yana look like they'd work. Also, anyone know if the handles can be replaced? Would like to put the GG handles on them.

I would assume the foam handles are glued on like the Yana's 2 piece poles. You can cut the foam off and sand down the surface to take a different grip. I had to replacee one after a possum chewed off chunks of the foam one night in a quest for salts. Yana sennt me a replacement and glue no cost which was great customer service (and I am in Australia). I would suggest you try the foam grips before swapping them as I find them very comfortable.

I don't believe you can,I own both poles and the GG poles are fatter than the Ti Goat poles,I think someone posted years ago that it was not possible.
