I have two sets of poles, my super small park poles and my normal (mid stomach) length poles for per say out west skiing, powder, racing, literally whenever I'm not park skiing.
They actually serve a purpose, and if you're saying long poles in general are retarded (and not just in the park) then you need to be hit in the face and go take a lesson or four and learn how to actually ski.
