I picked up a pair of Scott Master Mountain 2 one piece poles from the thrift store today for 5 bucks. There was another set of white ones with blue handles that came almost up to my armpits. I am 6ft. I could go back and grab them if anyone wants them. They had some scratches but they were straight. They are one piece as well. These are ski poles but great for the price. I don't know much about poles.
