I love these poles and this is my third pair but they have a major flaw... DURABILITY especially the tips and end caps! I've smacked the tip of two different poles off three times and smacked the end cap off twice as well. The plastic used for the tip and end cap is not up to the task. Never had an issue with any other poles but have repeatedly busted these. Major bummer. Be prepared to ask for warranty parts or buy them from Skimo...
