Goode Composite Poles Reviews


Goode Composite 10.4 with Inter-Loc


Pros: Balance, weight, safety

Cons: none

These poles made a big difference for me as they don't drag in the wind, which helps the swing of the pole.  The carbon poles don't bend and give more shock relief for the wrist and elbow.  Pole comes with removeable straps, powder and racing baskets and length can be adjusted by unlocking the grip and twisting.  The straps will release if caught on a lift, tree or fence, or if you need to escape from the strap.  This can be a significant safety feature.  The strap attaches to the inter-loc hook, which also works with glove Inter-Loc system, that I have not tried.  I have been able to order replacement straps and baskets, and customer service is very good.

Goode Poles


Pros: Everything he said

Cons: Price

Back before I had kids, I spent $120 on a set of Goode poles.  It was way too much to spend for poles, but like I said I did not have kids back then.  Anyway, they have been absolutely great.  The are as good as new. Unlike the other reviewer, I did not buy the Goode gloves.  In fact, I looked for them and could not find them.  A couple of years ago, I bought a pair of Leki trigger grips from a guy that broke a pole.  I removed the Goode grip and replaced it with the Leki.  I had to build up the pole with Gorilla tape, since the Goode shaft is thinner than the Leki.  I epoxied the grips on.  It is a great setup. A week or so ago, I rode up the hill with an instructor.  He was staring at...

I have used my Goode Poles for close to 16 years now! WOW They must be the first ones made? They are still in great shape and adjustable also. I use t


Pros: Light,strong,adjustable,Liki is now making the integrated system with the glove now but Goode was first.

Cons: None at all really

They are worth every penny. They are thin and Strong. The integrated gloves are top of the line! I just replaced my original glove with the new top line leather ones and couldn't be happier!!! minus 30 they still keep my hands warm! The nice thing about the clip in pole/glove system is the ergonomic position of your hand and pole for making pole plants. Its a natural feel. Totally stoked with mine. You will love them to!

Goode G strap metal clip durability


Pros: light, aerodynamic, strong poles after two weeks

Cons: integrity and thus durability of the G strap clip is poorly constructed

My wife was run into from behind by a weaving snowboarder ~2.5 weeks ago on a trail leading to and near the STBT area while tending to our nephew's wife who had fallen on her snowboard.  She suffered some bruises, soreness, knee swelling but he snapped one of her 15 year old Scott composite ski pole.  He apologized, didn't offer to pay for anything and rode off before I arrived or ski patrol could be notified.   After significant research we purchased (1//3/11) two pairs of Goode 10.4 CF ski poles from level nine just one week ago.  They arrived in ideal shape but after only two 1/2 days of use the metal clip on the 'G' strap (that attaches to the...

Still Going Strong after 20 Years!


Pros: Light weight, grip comfort, strap release, durability.

Cons: Ummmmmm.....none?

I purchased my first pair of Goode Tiger 9002s in 1980-something, and have loved, loved, loved them ever since. Even today they're still going strong. The grips and straps are comfy, the baskets are strdy, and the poles are light weight and exceptionally resilient. I'm impressed that the releasable strap has saved my hand/arm a couple of times over the years during chairlift shenanigans, but it also meant a lost strap off the Storm Peak chair at Steamboat one year. A quick e-mail to Goode resulted in a cost-free replacement set of straps within a few days. One of the straps on hubby's pair has come unstitched over the years, as well, but still.... I'm just amazed that these poles feel so...
