Looking to buy my first set. Haven't used them before and now need them. What's the brand to stay away from?

I would go with one of the REI brands, given they will replace them for free forever.

 

I have their traverse set and they do all I would want them to.


Give me a bow, a topo and two weeks and I guarantee I kill two weeks!

Just like hunting spots posted online, stupidity is searchable forever.

Not that I've used them in a long time but I have the Leki's and I really liked the mini-shock absorber in them. 


Good lookin' people, they got no spine.

 

In 1999 I was duped by Y2K, I thought the world was coming to an end and I spent well over a decade ingesting copious amounts of ayahuasca daily to prepare for the inevitable apocalypse which, to my genuine surprise, never arrived.

Komperdell set I have now are the best ones I've used. I like the clamps that snap for length adjustment a lot more than the twist lock style.

On Amazon you can order inexpesnive "Y" shaped yokes to screw on the top of your Trekking poles to then give them the ability to double as a monopod rifle rest. Rather than just the one big cushy padded topper they might come with.

Do fellas use their trekking poles as shooting sticks?  Like is there a simple product they slip onto the tops of both of the stick which connects them together and then just criss-cross them?
