Not a bad price for a decently made trekking pole, however I'm just not a fan of any Anti-shock trekking poles that I've tried. The foam grip feels great in my hands and the strap is very comfortable as well. However the twist on- twist off anti shock system doesn't work very well and will often switch itself while I'm on the trail which if I'm out for a long period of time becomes annoying. And besides that, the shocks will start to squeak after use which ruins the harmony of just your feet lifting up and setting down repeatedly so I no longer use these poles, I've switched back to my old REI Summit poles
