Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Daniel S  Great price on a good product!
Shopper  Adjusting the length of the pole. I have a Mountainsmith Pinnacle pole. The bottom section comes completely out. I've figured how to twist the top part of it to stay in, The middle section with the measurements- does this adjust?
MARCOS B  Yes both sections are adjustable and these poles also have the shock absorbtion feature. Overall the are a solid pole and well worth purchasing especially for the price. However, for a few extra dollars I would purchase the carbonlite pro trekking poles by mountainsmith - they are much lighter, feel sturdier, have better straps, better baskets, cork handles, overall a much better trekking pole. I have put those poles to the test as well (i have had them over a year and use them very frequently mostly on really tough terrain - I even took them out to the sierra's- and they have performed exceptionally.
