NMMediaGo into a shop. Hold poles. See what feels right, its a little different for everyone.
Also when you buy poles if they seem too long you can chop them down to length after taking the grips off, then just put the grips on.
And on a final note learn how to spell "sizing"
.nastynot all pole grips come off though. keep that in mind.
NMMediaI haven't yet found one that you couldn't get off with the use of hot water or a hair dryer. Anything with a glue is usually heat activated, so you can heat em up (hot water, hair dryer) and they slide right off! After just heat it up again and slide em on. Maybe there are brands out there that aren't possible to get off, but I cant imagine how they would be attached. Most ski shops will also chop poles to length for you (and most will do it for free if you purchase the poles from them).
.nastyTrust me. There are plenty of poles where they are not removable haha. Where I work we sell plenty in that fashion as we cut them for people constantly.
