Sticks and stones

Bought these for a great price at Rock and Run. They are light, fully collapsible and the cork handles are very comfortable. The adjustment is stiff but precise and strong. It would have been good to have rubber stoppers supplied for the tips rather than having to buy separately.

Light and Sturdy Poles

Used these poles on two treks up on Kinder Scout via Edale and Hayfield. Found them to be really strong yet very light,they have easy adjustments and look great. Yes I would recommend them.

Power Wands!

Took these trekking poles on a trial run over the weekend and they were fantastic. Can be a bit fiddly to shorten / lengthen the straps but once done you can forget about them. Certainly help with the knees when descending and encourages quicker walking / better balance too. I'm converted :D
