Don't look as nice as the old version, bit cheap and plastic like for €165

Also beware thinking you can take this style of pole as hand luggage, I've heard that they could be classed as an offensive weapon by the airlines , you wouldn't want them confiscated, that would be painful

I really don't understand the price of walking poles nowadays!? It's become ridiculous! I was looking at upgrading my old Leki poles. They are just box standard cheap jobs, but do the job. I just thought I'd go for something lighter, with a more comfortable grip, but couldn't justify the price tag!

It seems to be a case of trying to over engineer a really simple product.....and give it a hefty price tag. Will they help you walk faster/ balance across streams etc better than much cheaper alternatives?
