Claimed by Brian Blair.
I wrote an article on how to modify these poles and include hand loops using my methods.
Outdoor Products Trekking Poles (project) 52" and 47" full extension
– One pole is shorter than the other.
– Handles have been removed for an on-the-cheap trekking pole project that I never finished. I have one finished pair, that came in at right under 12oz, if you'd like to see pics and a description of what I did just let me know and I'll help you out.
Mudhole.com has eva foam handles that can be had for around $8 shipped.
No return PIF necessary and I'll pay shipping. Just want to give back where I can.Aug 5, 2013 at 12:41 pm #2012616

I'll take these if available.Aug 5, 2013 at 1:04 pm #2012625
Wow, beat me by one minute!Aug 5, 2013 at 1:08 pm #2012628
Sorry folks, I forgot to edit the post but I received a PM before both of you claiming the poles.
Keep an eye out, I'll have more stuff to PIF soon.

The problem I've found is that it's confusing on how to best respond first – Do you send PM first or reply to ad first? Or not respond to the ad at all? If you choose wrong, you lose. Not a sore loser, but have had it work both ways. So, what's the rule?Aug 5, 2013 at 1:23 pm #2012633

Do both — meaning post a response (hopefully yours is the first one) — and PM. While posting publicly doesn't guarantee that you are in fact the first — it does serve notice to others that the item is claimed.Aug 5, 2013 at 1:36 pm #2012641

I'd be interested in your project and if it differed from this one any.Aug 5, 2013 at 1:49 pm #2012650

It does differ slightly. I spliced 2 pairs of continuous loops out of dynaglide and one of 7/64 amsteel to make removable straps. I plugged them with cork to give them a nice look. I'll give a write-up as soon as I'm able and send you the link.Aug 5, 2013 at 2:01 pm #2012655

If you want an item contact the seller.
If you want to low ball the offer and disrupt a sale, "PM Sent" is the appropriate response.Aug 5, 2013 at 11:12 pm #2012838
