Pros: Light weight ,great swing feel,well built
Cons: They don't give them away
Technically speaking I think these are a Carbon 14 Trigger S. Using these versus the regular old ski pole strap takes a little adjustment but once you make it you'll likely never go back. The convenience and the ease of releasing the pole from the strap alone makes these worth looking at. The grip itself seems to promote a more fluid pole swing in my opinion and it helps that they are very light. Sure you can get along without them but these are one of those nice things to have. The "binding" type release might come in handy too but I can't say for sure and as far as durability goes we'll have to see how many seasons they last.
