Panda Poles are sick. I might be biased since I am an intern there, but before I put time in the Panda Dojo, I was a loyal customer.
Panda Poles are extremely durable, I have had my pair for a little over 4 years now and they are still going strong. All of the parts on the poles are holding up great as well.
The grips are super nice and sticky, and come in many colors and length options. The long grips are great for grabbing high on the traverse and then grabbing low on the way down.
The katana strap is super nice.
Baskets are great for traversing in pow and do not get snagged up on anything.
