Maybe try any of these. Solid poles for unbelievable prices:http://skiuniverse.com/categories/Ski-Poles/?sort=featured&page=2
I bought two pairs and they look great. Hard to beat 10$ poles.
Poles do matter. If you don't have the right size, it will change how you ski. Racers tend to ski with longer poles to help with the start, but how much it helps is debatable. Recreational skiers do better with shorter poles.
This past season I did a bit of research and demoing and will be skiing this season with poles that are 4 inches shorter than I have been using. I'm not saying buy poles 4 inches shorter than you need; I'm saying my were four inches too long.
Through my research I found that during the past when folks were on longer skis with less side cut, they needed longer ski poles. That is no longer the case.
I do agree that spending big money on ski poles isn't necessary and the funds are better spent elsewhere, as long as the poles are the correct size.
To the OP, I didn't look at the link but the brand is good. I haven't used them but my daughter has a set.
You might be able to get more guidance if you tell us what the poles are for; i.e. park, trees, race, groomers etc.
If you have an opportunity on a good deal of adjustable poles, you might want to try those to figure out the correct size for your style of skiing.
