The question was:
Has anyone used them and not liked them?
I had never considered using poles until I read about them on this forum. That is to say, when trekking in Thailand, I used a bit of bamboo on steep downhills to try to alleviate a tears-inducing knee pain, and in NZ bush I carry an old stick….but the thought that there are real proper poles was a new idea to me.
I’ve borrowed a pair of Lekis, which are OK, but Pacerpoles *sound* so much better. Certainly I’ve found positive reviews on this forum – but are there any bad experiences?
