    Hi, I'm in the market for a new trekking poles, and Pacer poles and GG LT4 seem to be highly rated here. Which is better between them? Which is the most important, ultimate comfort or weight? Anyone has tried both? Other poles recommendations are also welcomed.

    i just lost a long honk'n letter praising my pacer poles.
    this is the short version.

    i have worn out two prs of leki makalu's.
    pacerpoles Work Better than std pole design in most any area.
    they are bomber tough, and that's a good thing

    buy them.

    my concern is that pacerpole relatively heavy. Did it trouble you?

    I wonder if you could buy the pacer poles' handles and put them on a different shaft? I think the angled handle is the only difference between the pacer poles and 'normal' poles; theoretically, you could combine their spiffy biomechanics with the light weight of the LT4s. But, buying each would be $pendy. Maybe emailing the pacer pole folks could lead to a fruitful myog or cyog (combine your own gear) opportunity?

    unfortunately I read somewhere that most of pacerpoles' weight is located in the handles :(
