any one else think there should be a company that just makes cheap as shit poles with solid colors?
I know some people like the nice expensive ones but I know there are a ton of people that regularly ski with stolen rental poles, bent poles poles that are missing the basket and sometimes even mismatching poles. they could cut costs by not even painting them, just making one size and market them as cheap customizable (cut it yourself). super simple rubber grips and baskets.
why does every pole company think they need the best aluminum and composites with the most ergonomic grips and the most advanced basket system ever? park rats go through a couple pairs of poles a season so I think someone should just make super cheap poles.
