Are these poles good for the price?
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 ones...by absentmindedly dangling them between her legs at Timberline--I'm sure you can imagine what happened.)
poles? I never use them. What are they for?
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.
