I leave them at home and use trekking poles. I have a pair of Peak UL's by Komperdell (12 oz) that I use. I drilled a whole in the top, Gorilla glued a nut into it and bolt them to my hammock. (I leave the tip alone and have no issues yet). Total weight 12.9oz. Considering the benefits of using trekking poles I consider it a win-win situation.
