ski poles - Page 2

post #31 of 37
47-48" should work, unless you like them short, then 46" should work. You might consider adjustable poles for the BC and in case you want to change, but they're supposedly not as durable as regular poles.

Or, get the red ones...

As my profs used to say back in art school, "If you can't make it good make it big. If you can't make it big, make it red."

On pole length, there are differences of opinion. Some say the hand under the basket method is a hangover from the pre-shaped era. They say hand above the basket is more appropriate to the pole-tap of contemporary styles. My poles are shorter, but I'm not in the trees much. Someone who is can advise you better.

Well, he didn't call them "sticks". That's saying something.

Exactly. Sticks are skis, of course.

Bought some cheap insoles and put them under the liner (between the hard shell and liner).  It seemed to work great! My toes got a bit colder because of the snugger fit, but overall, it would surprisingly well.
