well the thing is, i have a pair of 50 inch poles, and won a pair of 46 inch, and i seem to use the shorter ones all the time and i was wondering when i go out west if the bigger poles help or w/e...idk.
Crooked spin can't come to rest
I'm damaged bad at best
She'll decide what she wants
I'll probably be the last to know
No one says until it shows and you see how it is
They want you or they don't
I suppose the extra length would help when traversing and the poles sink deep in the snow, but then why wouldn't you get wide baskets to prevent that problem?
If I had 2 pairs of poles I'd cut them the same length but have small baskets for the park pair and fricken' huge baskets for the pow pair. I don't think I'd want to go up 4 inches though, it would throw me off.
