Life-Link Variant Ski/Probe Pole

Posted

Pros: lightweight, adjustable

Cons: the adjustment mechanism is veery fragile, service sucks

I bought these poles.  Used them about 10 days and the locking device broke.  i went for service.  they "fixed" it.  It broke within a day.  I tried to get service and they are terrible at customer service.  I bought new poles.  I never, ever use these.  they are useless for backcountry use.  They cannot be relied upon.
