    Anyone try these poles for the Ridgerunner?

    Heya - So I just pulled the trigger on a used Ridgerunner and want to try trekking poles for it. The Mountainsmith Trekker FX poles that everyone seems to love are now discontinued, but it seems like B&H still has them. While looking, I found these on Sierra Trading Post: https://www.sierratradingpost.com/mo...shock~p~4363d/

    I could get two of them for almost half the price of one Trekker FX, but I don't know if they'd have the same strength or necessary features. Seems like they'd work..?

    Specs:

    Number of sections: 3
    Adjustable: Yes
    Lock mechanism: Double cam twist lock out
    Length: 28" to 57"
    Anti-shock: Yes
    Basket type: Trekking
    Tip material: Carbide tip with rubber boot tip and removable hiking basket
    Single/Pair: Single
    Shaft material: 6061 aluminum alloy
    Handle material: EVA
    Weight: 10 oz.

    I own those poles, and yes they have performed without failure for my ridgerunner. I think that the aluminum is not as high grade as the fx, but the more likely failure point for any of these poles is the distal end - not the aluminum itself.

    Thanks so much! I'm gonna snag some. Maybe I'll build some caps as I've seen others do to better support the ends.
