I saw those in Costco the other day. They are not lighter than my black diamond alumium poles despite these poles are made of carbon fibre.

Saw them at Burlington Costco as well. There were probably couple of dozens left.

Black diamond aluminum poles are $100-$175 and these are $25.... For most people’s uses, the little bit of extra weight is not noticeable nor makes a difference.

Highly reviewed by Andrew Skurka... a man who has 10's of thousands of miles thru-hiking (also wrote a gear book for National Geographic which is great).

Also, FYI at Costco Burnaby they were still full price. I have two sets of these and also Black Diamond Carbon Z-Poles which are much lighter, but fragile and not adjustable.

Just came back from China and used a pair of these

These poles do not have the twist lock but use clip type locks

Many of our fellow travelers bought those with a twist type lock
Virtually everyone had problems

+1 to these. Flip locks are good as long as you tighten them before starting your hike.

Never had the pole slip/retract, for the price (even at original $50) it is worth it. $25 for these is a bargain, esp with the different accessories included.

They aren't as light as some other CF poles, but they can't be beat for value. These are ~15oz per pair, which is comparable to most poles except for the lightest bd series at 1/5 the price and are variable length

I never understood hiking poles. What are they for? Are these for hiking with a heavy pack or something? Who's the target audience?

Unfortunately not on sale at Calgary Costco. Assuming this only applies to east Costco.
