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?

1. Stability when you are hiking difficult terrain, especially with a heavy multi-day pack these are crucial.
2. Protect your knees going downhill, again especially a heavy pack... reduce stress on your knees by shifting the weight to your arms.
3. Going uphill you can also offload a little of the work from your legs by using your arms.

When I first started hiking in my early 20's I was cocky and never used poles on 3 day hikes with a heavy pack. Going downhill really puts a lot of impact stress on your knees. Now in my late 20's I have bad knees and poles are a life saver on hikes.

+1 to this. I feel that using poles also help increase my pacing because the load is now distributed to 4 limbs instead of just 2.

On a steep downhill, it really helps will stability and reduce knee fatigue... this isn't much of a problem if downhill is like 30 seconds, but when you're doing a 2-3 hour downhill, it gets bad.

Also you can use a hiking pole to probe the trail for how deep the mud is or whether the log/rock is steady enough to walk on.

When you go hiking over hill land. I went hiking at Killarney and used a walking stick I found on the ground and by the end my knees were dead. These would have helped a ton.

Checked Warden & Eglinton and Hwy 7 Markham location and no luck. :(

Has anybody seen this around east end?
