So I just got my first pair of park poles (Mad Owl Parkores). They are pretty steezy. I noticed that I can remove the straps, and it got me thinking of when the last time I used pole straps in the park was, and I cant remember. How many of you use pole straps, and how many either cut them off of remove them? Im thinking of removing them but the 'proper' skiier in me is hesitant about it for some reason, dispite the fact that these poles serve no function other than looking steezy and pushing about on the flats as they are 37" poles.
Opinions on pole straps go go go.
