Decided to try and fix up some of my Dad's old composite poles for me to use, similar to this but older http://www.rossignol.com/US/US/pursuit-carbon-g40_RD22010_product_alpine-men-poles.html
I cut them down to fit me, however one of the tips of the poles had been sheared off so I had to try and repair it. I managed to find a bolt that sat flush, cut it and glued it in. Then filled away the ends to make a point, however, the poles are slightly uneven in length and the ends are different (as shown in the pictures)
Will the length difference have much effect? Also wondering if the shape of the ends will effect how it will stick in the snow?
Thanks in advance
