IMO poles are one of the few things i buy like 100% on they're looks, cause theres not much difference between them. i just got this years armada ar6 ones cause they're purple with yellow stripes, which is awesome
but yea check out joystick, 4frnt, armada, and some company that makes like colorado poles? i forget the name. then there are the big companies like leki and scott and stuff
a friend of mine from new england was driving through georgia on a road trip and he ends up getting pulled over for speeding. the cop goes "son you were goin 80 in a 60. no one goes that fast through georgia." my friend responds with "well, Sherman did"
If you have a preference on the grips and the pole tip, go with that. I happen to like the scott pro grips and the diamond tip works well on super shitty east ice. The fact that they are a better aluminum makes them less bendy and more durable.
i just got some line pin for really cheap at my shop cause i bought some other stuff so it was pretty much like a thank you from the, haha. they're pretty nice and fairly thick shaft so they make resist breaking a little more, the grips are so nice, and they're short plus light...pretty much all you want in a pole if you can get them for cheap or free, oh yeah and they have sick graphics
