I need new poles.

Are these worth what they're asking?

I would normally just go for aluminum poles, but the price difference from these made me think about going composite...

Anyone have suggestions for better places to get poles cheaply? The ski swap plan didn't work out (very limited selections of poles... although I didn't manage to hit Ski Center's, which was probably the most likely to have what I wanted).

I'll need a pair at around 50" and another around 47-ish.

I Love levelnine--they have an e-bay store, and I've bought both my daughter's poles there...I especially loved them after I saw similar poles at our local Sportmart for more than twice what I paid for them. It looks like a great deal to me! (But then I HAD to buy one daughter new poles because she broke her aluminum absentmindedly dangling them between her legs at Timberline--I'm sure you can imagine what happened.)

I like Goode's high end poles. I absolutely -despise- their Vylon poles. I find them squishier than any other composite pole, unjustifiably heavy, and very dead in the hand. K2's 4speed pole beats Goode Vylon on hand feel imo.

I do have to say that that price is very reasonable for a nice grip, a big warranty, and a complimentary set of pow baskets. I paid twice that for my pow poles.

Of those two I would prefer the Kerma Vector any day, east or west.

SC-Arl had -one- pair of 50" series 4 ovalized scotts on Sat. , my pick for stuff around here.

Otherhalfrex uses Kerma Banshees; she's even pickier than I am.
