Fizan Compact poles. They are amazing. They weigh so little, never slip on me, and cost about half of what the other options cost, including shipping from the UK. Currently available here:
I have been using them for 2 seasons now and they are just amazingly good poles, work for setting up my shelter(s) and can take all of my weight in a fall (maybe I was just lucky?)"
I have been using some for about 1.5 yrs, and have 400+ miles on them.
One of mine has cracked in some spots. Not sure of cause. Hasnt failed, hasnt slipped.
In fact the older and more corroded the insider surface of the aluminum tube gets, the better they hold I think.
I ordered another pair recently. There simply isnt anything else out there that compares. fully adjustable 3 piece up to 135cm length, down to very short, all aluminum, stiff, and best of all, AVAILABLE (sort of).
The BA passport/helinox had a reputation for being extremely flexible, GG adjustable and Ruta Locura are never in stock, locus gear fliplock isnt in stock, and some complaints were had about previous twistloks.
