Hey Chris, did that A-hole take 1 or both poles. Some A-hole at Mad River Glen grabbed one of my Scott ProTaper when the skies opened up with liquid snow one Sunday afternoon last March and left me my 1 Scott ProTaper and 1 Leki aluminum, I kept the mismatched pair... If you have one, whoever has the shortest wins the pair... I LOVED those poles......
To stay on topic, I much prefer the handles on the Scott composite poles.
