    Stick Club

    Poles...a recommendation

    My wife and I took Komperdell carbon poles with us on our 2014 Camino. These were excellent and we really liked the Nordic Walking style gloves that attach to the handles. I know they aren't recommended for trekking, but we found them excellent. Unfortunately we were lost one of the poles...

    Changing worn-down tips on Black Diamond z-poles?

    Last year when I walked from Le Puy to SJPP I used a pair of Black Diamond Z-poles (which I liked very much). I forgot to carry replacement tips . I was using the rubber tips (the actual screw-in tips that come with the poles, not the rubber covers that you just push on). By the time I got to...

    Buying walking poles in Seville?

    I would prefer not to buy poles in Australia and will be starting my camino in Seville. Can anyone tell me where I can definitely find hiking poles and are Pacer Poles available in Spain. Or should I get them to post them to me in Spain?

    Pole usage from Sarria to Santiago

    Good day everyone, I am debating to bring poles are not for the last stage of the Camino. I am a believer in poles and have used them quite often when hiking. I know they work for me when it comes to hiking through the woods (trails) or through different elevations. My understanding is that...

    Wood Hiking Sticks/Poles Bring or Buy upon arrival?

    I would really like to take a wood hiking pole/stick but I am a little concerned with transport from the USA. I am planning on flying into Madrid then taking the train to Pamplona and starting the Camino from there. Anyone fly recently from the states with this type of situation? Any advice?
