    Comments about Mountainsmith Rhyolite 6061 Trekking Poles (pair):

    The only thing better would be carbon fiber or titanium. BUT, these are a bargain in this price rangea and compete with some poles selling for $70-80.

    The baskets help when flat walking on sandy trails also (Utah, etc.) I try not leave an impact behind, so the I use rubber tips rather than carbide on red rock/slick rock. Shorten one up as a stability aid when moving out of a canyon. The carbide is used in streams in state parks, etc.

    I am retired military, so NOT REALLY "minimalist driven" as above. ANY trail where I could be trapped by weather I have a pack stove and water purifier, along with rope, etc. in my pack. Using the poles keeps me an ideal arm/soulder position on slopes.

    They are light enough they don't create any weight burden.

    CON: If it's hot, you may sweat from the grips. Lightweight mesh gloves will solve that in desert areas.
