heads up, a friend tried to warranty a pair, and BD rejected honoring their warranty, saying thru-hiking is an unintended use.

There are several designs of shelters that use hiking poles as uprights (instead of tent poles). If planned carefully, these can become the basis for an ultralight hiking kit. The cork handles work well for sweaty palms, with the benefit of low weight. These are definitely on the nicer side of trekking poles too. That being said, trekking poles aren't for everyone...

You can find very similar pairs for over half this..see link below...unless you are an ultralight backpacker the extra 2 oz per pole is not a huge difference in the grand scheme of things. Not worth even 116.

I own one of each of these pairs and i guess it depends on if you want to spend double the money on the black diamond (i bought bd ones used for $55)

These are the ones with the good metal powerlock. Pretty nice overall, but a tad heavy for the price...

I'm not convinced by the lock on the Cascade mountain ones. I've had poles that seemed great on paper with similar looking locks. They died after less than 100 Miles on the trail.

uh huh. Why even pay for poles at all when you can just break the branch off of a tree and use that?

Sad to hear about the warranty issues. Black diamond I thought was good with that. Just had a bad experience with North face warranty so they are off my trust list. Patagonia and outdoor research seem to be the solid ones left

Huh? How would they even know what kind of hiking one does with them? I'm not a fan of carbon or fiberglass for hiking, but do love the BD Trail Back Trekking Poles..practically indestructible.
Excellent quality and $64.! http://www.cabelas.com/product/BL...&gclsrc=ds
