/ Komperdell ski poles
I had a pair which lasted many years before being replaced despite heavy use both for skiing & walking. But they were bought in the 1980s so maybe not representative of what they produce today
I had these poles about 10 years ago, very nice, but the adjust locking mechanism failed after a few weeks so I contacted Komperdell and sent off under warranty. Good response from company, but failed again shortly afterwards and didn't fancy sending off again so now make do with regular poles. Have heard that adjustable poles aren't favoured for touring and aren't recommended. Mike
Thanks for your comments guys.
