I usually swear by Amrada products, but a couple years ago i bought their poles and they broke on the first day i skied with them... They literally just snapped when I barely put my weight on them after falling. Granted it was probably my skiing ability that made them break, but i have had the same pair of Scott poles for the last 6 years and I have tried to replace them twice but they are the only ones that just don't break. I suggest going to a ski swap or thrift store and finding some cheap poles, or investing $ in some Scotts. Other than that poles are not worth it.
the armadas pretty much has replacible shafts except i dont think you can buy just the shaft. My friend has a two pairs of shafts and 1 pair of grips so if one snap he just puts the grips on the next shafts
