Thanks. I was actually looking to get a set for my mother-in-law. She's not as spry as she used to be and those temples in Japan were hard on her last vacation.

Aluminum vs carbon fibreCoolcicada wrote: ↑ Have you seen the Komperdell ones on clearance at Sportchek for $30-40? The $40 has an original retail of $150. I won't pretend to know the first thing about these but I bought this $40 Komperdell already and it seems like a steal. Still in stock. Copy and paste links.

They are lighter, stiffer and stronger than my previous aluminum poles (Black Diamond Expedition). I did manage to break one lower section back in March because I accidentally step on it. Cascades customer service was amazing and they sent me a replacement section for free.
Have you tried the Black Diamond Traverse Pro Ski for backcountry? I wouldn't want to rely on the costco one's for touring!
The video that Coolcicada posted refers to collapsible poles, not telescopic poles like the Cascades. It's a different design and results in different stresses. It just cannot be compared to telescopic poles.

That's super weird regarding carbide tips coming out. I've had multiple pairs of these and many friends who use them as well, and the only problem is that the tips (or the rubber foot) disintegrates after some long distance usages.Kaitlyn wrote: ↑ I have these but have some annoyances - mainly that I find they slip (I know how to adjust tension)
I also had the carbide tip come out of BOTH poles (separately) which I've never had happen on a set of poles.
The saving grace was their customer service was great. Replacements came free.
Don't have Costco membership anymore but IMO at $30 these are fantastic.
