I just got done using these poles for 2000 miles along the Appalachian Trail. Overall they performed wonderfully.

These poles weigh approximately twelve and a half ounces for the pair, so they are not super light, but not to bad. By the end of the hike the poles were scratched, but not bent like other poles I saw by that point. Another huge positive was the locks were still working well. I only had a lock slip once the entire hike. The tips were also still in great shape, but I had rubber tips on for the majority of the time.

My one complaint is when the poles were wet they became hard to lock/unlock to make length adjustments. This could be annoying when I was trying to adjust the length to set up my hexamid at the end of the day.

All in all I would recommend these poles and would use them again.
