I have started doing a little hiking.
To keep doing it, I need some of those new fangled poles.
A guy I know swears by the Black Diamond Trekking Poles.
Backpacker really likes the Super Makalus.
I am thinking the antishock poles may not be the thing for me.
These will be short hikes, I want them to make life easier on my knees.
I suspect the control will be better without the antishock, and the vigorous
hiking I imagine the Makalus are designed for is not something I will be doing at all. I'll be walking softly, and slowly.
But now that I am ready to order, I'm just not sure. Does anyone here have experience with them? Thanks.
