hey guys they are not the only ski pole that supports us sorry to say.
In the october freeze it has k2 freeride poles in the GEAR section. ($75)
k2's parent company owns shakespeare fishing rods, whose composite technology has been producing rediculously strong fishing poles for decades. Being the clever company that they are (they did invent the first twin-tip, you know) K2 realized that lightweight ski poles are basically the same type of composite technology, but with nowhere near the manufacturing experience. A few adjustments in the factory and-voila! It's the only ski pole light enough for Pep Fujas and strong enough to pull a 220-pound marlin straight from the pacific. - Freeze Magazine Oct 04
dude.. its neat and all, but i don't buy poles. they are the least affective part of my skiing, and two bamboo sticks can serve the same purpose. i just don't have the money to buy poles. i use old 5 dollar ones. good luck though. i'm sure tons of kids form this site will buy em. FREEZING POINT 32
Just make your own poles. Get one inch wooden dowels, then stick them in a pipe of that fit your height, but some tape around the top and nails in the bottom. Then be prepared to have nice heavy, and duty, poles for the rest of the week!
it depends where you take them from, if you somehow manage to snag them from the shop itself, your made. on the other hand if you punk them from the racks all you've done is made that poor bastard tourist pay for it, which is essentially the same thing as stealing a privately owned pole

If i like them better than my poles and all the other new ones i look at then i will buy them ok! ALRIGHT
Pete is currently sulking around Mt. Hood, shooting with Poor Boyz Productions and hitting on Kristi Leskinen. She hates guys, Pete lamented, so it’s not going good. Apparently Canada isn’t the only thing that’s tough for Pete to get into.
i use rossignol poles. this year i was just shopping around to get a super strong, not heavy pole that had a big basket that wouldnt sink in snow.
Leki has a cool release system, the strap will release from the grip if theres enough stress put on it. i thought this would be ideal for big mountain skiers or people that spend alot of time in glades. i know my poles got stuck in tome roots a couple time last year and i thought my arm was gonna tear off.
and i think that Rossignol should make a pole specifically for Candide. well you know how in pipe he always gives that little pole plant? well i think they should give the pole a specific flex pattern and alot of pop to give the rider that extra 8 inches of amplitude or so
If you take rentals poles from someone while they're on the rack, they'll just go get new ones. They don't regulate poles.You can just go in and take them from rentals.
'Ok, so I'm going to assume that you know someone named 'your' and he is, in fact, a homosexual.
i dont understand how making joystick poles 'fills the void' in freestyle skiing.
There is a man, A certain man, And for the poll you may be sure that hell do all he can, who is this one whos favorite sign just by his action has attraction magnets on the run, who likes to smoke, enjoys a joke and wouldnt get a bit upset if he were really broke with wealth and fame hes still the same i bet you five if not alive that you dont know his name.
am i the only one that's realizing this, THEY'RE FUCKING POLES PEOPLE!! i mean come on, you're going to spend probably $50+ USD for a pair of poles that most likely won't last too damn long.
i paid $24 cdn for my poles 2 years ago and they're still going strong, bent a tad but still going!
