LT3C Trekking Poles (fixed length)
- Product Review (submitted on March 16, 2011):
- I have a pair of the "older" versions and have used them for 2 years and many miles. I have 5 sets of poles from a variety of manufacturers (including the LT4s which I also love). These poles are so well balanced and light that you do NOT need straps. Most hikers use their poles like ski poles: Planting them as if they're turning. These poles should flow and swing with your natural arm motions. They turn uphills into a rhythmic, easy motion and make downhills easier on the knees and back. Also, it's simple to choke up or down on the grip (or beIow) to "vary" the pole "height" depending on the terrrain. I highly recommend these poles!
