          for the price you get these on evo, you really can't go wrong. the biggest gripe i have with them is that the nice bright blue paint finish started chipping the first day. after a good day of skiing, i noticed tons of knicks and chips on the blue paint. must've banged up against my skis on the lift and other things along the way. over time, i can see significant amounts of paint coming off, but hey - for the price, i can just buy another pair!

                      I love these poles. They look great, and are light. They get the job done great. They have a steel tip for when it's icy like where I live. They also come with bigger baskets that you can put on for powder which will be great if I get a good storm when I go out to the real mountains.

                        Nice light and cheap ski pole. Got them for park skiing. Comes with pow baskets which is a big plus. I bought mine big to cut them down to whatever I wanted with a pipe cutter.

                        Cant beat the price, and they look good too.

                        Can't beat a [$] set of poles. No matter what they are getting bent so why not get cheap ones.

                          Both my daughter, 12, and I have the same poles.
                          We are both about the same size but different levels of skier. I am itermediate and once upon a time advanced. She is a beginner to intermediate. Both of us really liked the poles.
                          They did what we needed them to do and they were easy to spot...silly but a benefit nonetheless.

                            These poles are lightweight and the grip has a sure feel to it. The straps are simple to use as well (easy to get hands in and out). Color didn't match anything I own (looks a little 80s-ish--but i chose it that way) which makes it easy to spot where my skis are in a crowded rack.

                            For the price ($20-$30), these are great.

                                I have only used them three days so if something bad happens in the near future I will update this, but otherwise there is nothing wrong with them at all!

                                          The poles are a little on the fat side so I mostly just use them when I am skiing back country or powder.

                                            Pleasantly surprised with this product. These poles are very lightweight and also the colors are just as bright in the picture as they are in real life. I haven't tried them out yet, but I am sure I won't be disappointed.

                                            I loved how lightweight these poles were. The graphic on these 2011 ones are pretty sick as well.
