I saw a very thin soft store opened as a tent poles

The issue is only 120 cm length. And if carbon falls broke?

The cost can be found in Phoenix.

The question for those who have experience if those sticks, recommended or not,

Thank you.............

Carbon sticks will not break if they fall. As no tent poles are broken when they fall on the floor.
They are easier than aluminum sticks, but more fragile (aluminum stick a little more flexible, and at worst it can bend some carbon fiber stick breaks).

I really think that the main problem is the length. Stick 120 cm sounds much too short to serve me comfortably. But there are also carbon fiber sticks "normal" lengths.

The length of the short rods at about 15 cm products. I'm not low and high and Rod length 115 cm fits me so depends what the length of the rod that fits you.

Going with carbon rods for several years. Didn't break me once. I think it is worth. In terms of the appropriate length and it's another story. I wouldn't buy it in Israelimtl41196.7635532407

I suppose you saw them have the DB ULTRADISTANCE in several different lengths-should that suits you. Normally cheaper in USA if you have access.

Without open duel with-IMTL carbon rules very strong structurally (i.e. the strength of geometric structure in terms of strength to weight etc) but more sensitive to specific hazards, because the fiber structure can break and crack. As I tell you and others-IMTL many have used for a long time and successfully.
Note that different types are mainly differences in wall thickness (thickness affects the weight and resistance to breaking, punching) and diameter (diameter affects the weight and structural strength mainly because of excellent bending strength squared diameter)

Plus ULTRA slim the DB without change (it might be significant to snow) and relatively less powerful lock-what is affecting a situation where stuck stick (nchlev) between stones etc

If you decide to look at I'd check domain:
BD ultradistance

Gossamer gear/lt3 LT4
Yana Rutalocura poles

There is another Japanese type I forgot his name. These are easier and popular with the UL.
There are, of course, to LEKI etc

Here here an update today about the walking sticks of Gossamer. Are not many liability in Maine, Appalachia trail. You should take this into account.

I have a few carbon rods including membership of GG. Saw reviews here and there for them. Yet in my experience was with them. Many people simply don't know how to go with.
I suggest check carefully before Kenya. Whether it's carbon, titanium or whatever.

Personally I don't get some people don't approach can go "-IMTL says he's wrong-I have no doubt that given by some basic techniques to make sure clubs lengthening days. I personally prefer sticks don't have to think about. But that's probably personal. In the end there is a big difference between someone like maybe IMTL travel/travel thousands of miles per year and so has experience with fitness + equipment + no discretion to a friend like me who the best time twice a year for a few weeks. Skill is undoubtedly a significant thing, but not everyone can reach the high skill level:(

About adjustable height:
I was looking on the GG and RUTA the melted cheese. This is a reasonable compromise.
-In addition to BD also folding model as ULTRA but contains one adjustable
-Look for aluminium sticks of FIZAN. The COMPACT estate specific COMPACT 4 ... very easy even for a carbon price. I bought like this next week, but only travels with them. What are undoubtedly more delicate LEKI I had before but easy as hell.

But Mickey. We totally agree on the setting there are people who can't walk. It was said in sarcasm. But to clarify that some of the reviews about equipment in General, and not just about rods as 500,000 are because people just don't know how to use the equipment.

If not everyone can be a high degree of skill, so not everyone needs to go just to buy sophisticated equipment or getting smart and wasting money.

All I'm saying is that both praises and criticisms should be grain of salt. You never know what the person's experience.

At least here in the Forum can ask the person giving the criticism and what experience he had.

By the way ... If you can write a review about your new sticks after you finish the hike it is very effective.
