Can anyone that has experience with both the classic Goode 10.4 mm carbon composite "pencil" pole, and the Leki 11/11S, tell me how they compare in shock absorption?  I need a pole with a shock-absorbing shaft to prevent wrist pain. I've found the Goodes to work very well in that regard, and I'm wondering if the Lekis will be equaly effective.  I'd particularly like to hear from someone that has the same issue with pole shock that I do (plants at high speed with aluminum poles used to make my wrists sore).
