What pole did I just buy?

Just picked up a set of poles since the set I use right now is too short, but I couldn't find it on manfuacturer's website so I have no clue what they are, any help? Thanks!

Looks like exactly what the label says it is: last year's race pole.   

 

Are you panicked about the ISO 7331 disclaimer?

Actually no, I'm not worried about it, just curious since I couldn't find what model was it on neither atomic's website nor google. Paid $57 CAD for it after tax, duno how good is it.

 

It does feel thinner (wall thickness) and more flexible than regular aluminum poles, but I like the thinner tip , should work better in the shitty snow/ice at Bromont than the regular tip.

From the 07/08 racing catalogue.......

 

They came in blue too, to match the ladies' skis :)

Thanks, so it's just leftover from 07/08 season and discountinued.

Anyone know what's the deal with "not in according to iso...."? It seems quite a few atomic poles have that printed on. Also I would assume the little tip is tungsten carbide like their current poles (as stated on their website)? But the tip is also magnetic (less so than steel), and if I recall tungsten carbide isn't magnetic.

How is skiing in Canada? I'm guessing you are from Vancouver.
