K2 Power 8 Flipjaw or line whip pole?
i'm 40% piste 40% backcountry 20% park type of guy. Only ever had rental poles before but looking to make a purchase
i'm looking at line whip or the k2 flipjaw any advice appreciated.
The Power 8 Flipjaw is going to be fully adjustable from 44"-54" and allows for a variety of options which most people prefer in the backcountry. It also helps a lot if you're still growing. Hope that helps!
flip jaw is more comparable to the line pollard paint brush pole. comes down to if you want an adjustable pole or not, which by the sounds of your riding preferences you do.

Sorry K2, but I don't like that the shortest the Flipjaw gets is 44. That's not very packable. Most touring poles get much shorter.
