Comments about K2 Sprout Adjustable Ski Poles - Big Girls' 2015:

We have not used these yet so mountain performance has not been tested. Once the poles are adjusted and tightened, they seem very sturdy and I expect them to hold their position. The major problem with these is the nut used to tighten and loosen the shaft to make adjustments is plastic, threaded on a metal bolt. As we adjusted one of the poles, we heard a snap sound and instantly knew we stripped the nut. Fortunately we found a fix, the bolt is threaded as a fine thread and we were able to buy nuts from the local hardware store and grind them down with a dremmel to imitate the plastic nut that came with the poles. I expect the metal nut to hold up much better than the plastic nut. These seem like they should be great poles for my kids to grow up with after upgrading the nut. I will try to update review after they have mountain use.

    great for learning kids.
    Good value for money

    bought these for my daughter (6). This is the 3rd set i buy. My other two kids are still using them at 11 for the last 2 seasons (the 11 yr old is going down blacks with these and no problems, once adjusted they stay put)
    they have a pretty good range of length adjustment.

        Our girls were very excited to get their first ski poles. We appreciate the idea of having the poles grow with them. Although we purchased these too late in the season to try them this year, based on perceived quality, we've already recommended them to others.

          Purchased these poles for my older daughter 10 yo.
          No problems with durability and more than adequate for her age and ability.
          She is already an advanced skier able to negotiate expert terrain and the bumps.
          The adjustability factor was the primary reason for purchase and she will get several years of use from these. Just ordered a second pair for my 7 yo.

                My daughter turned 7 this ski season and she really wanted to start using poles (mostly to propel herself through the lift lines!) I bought these because they are adjustable and will get more than one season out of them! They twist to adjust and had no problem with them coming loose once locked at the right height.

                  I got these for my 6 and 8 year old girls. They like them and it saves me from getting new poles each year as they grow. Adjustablity is their strength, but that is also it's weakness. The twist mechanism for locking them in place can come loose after use. It appears to happen more frequently with the shaft adjusted to it's shortest length. Both of my girls are pretty advanced and skiing black off piste terrain (e.g. Extrovert and terrain around it in Alta), so I think they put them through rigorous use.

                  Overall, we've been happy with the purchase.
