I have one pair of Line poles that are going on 4 years. They are beat to hell, don't even have matching baskets anymore. When I was out west this year I managed to bend one of them at a 30* angle and somehow bent it back… good as new.
One of their marketing shticks is the rubber tab on top of the grip, I can actually say that is my favorite part of the poles.
What's the rubber tab for?
