okay so , this happened a while back,, and its puzzled me ever since, so I thought Id finally see what you guys think. So last summer I had a pair of rental ski poles from hill that I just ended up keepin, they just stayed in my room. So opening day of just this previous season, Im usin these poles that ive had all summer, and I keep seein this black shit on my gloves..then I look down, and the bottom of my jacket has this black shit on it from wher my poles have been touching my jacket. and im like wat the fuck. Its like the pole grips were melting..cud them being indoors for all that time then going into a cold climate make them do this? Idk, but does anybody have any ideas on why they did that.
spark notes: had poles all summer, first day of season they like melted and got rubber all over me.
