I've been pricing poles for a few months now. I've been reading customer reviews. Sometimes it really does seem that the more you pay for the item the better the quality it is. However I am not made of money and I do try to find bargains where ever possible. I'd settle for a decent set of used poles with a lifetime warranty on them.
I like the Black Diamond Trail Shock Trekking Poles at REI but there is no way I can afford to spend over $100.00 USD on something I might use but a few times a year. My second choice are the Leki Eagle Trekking Poles of which seem to be quite adequate for the price.
This year J and I are hoping to make a camping and hiking trip in Yellowstone National Park It all comes down to gas prices, leave times, and what I can physically do on the trip. I really want to get a set of the poles. I want to be able to walk longer distances and take plenty of pictures too.
