Now that the weather is nice here I try to hike in the hills once or twice a week, for fun first but for fitness too. Yesterday we were talking about these trekking poles, which are basically telescoping ski poles.

Anyone tried these? If so, is there any difference (other than portability) between a pair of these and a pair of junk ski poles?

Brian,

The poles are great for increasing your effiency while hiking. I have used both the cheap old ski poles and the new-fangled, lightweight, collapsing poles and I gotta say that there is not much difference for general use. A big plus is you can find old ski poles very cheap at garage sales and used sports equipment places.
