CAMP Xenon Trekking Poles - $35
Was looking over the closeout section at CAMP and noticed these trekking poles:http://www.camp-usa.com/products/trekking%20poles/closeout/xenon-537.aspThey're collapsible aluminum held together with dyneema cord. Only 120cm and 135cm sizes left, 9.2oz and 10.2oz respectively(per pair).I don't have any experience with these - can someone chime in? For the price and weight they don't look bad!
They are way too flexible. If you want inexpensive poles, you are much better off with the bargain carbon fiber ones from Costco.

Thanks for that! It was late, didn't cross my mind to use the search function. Good to see an article where I can judge with my own eyes, wow, I'll be staying away from these.
