If you are hesitant about making the move to a fixed length carbon pole, the Komperdell Featherlight Carbon trekking poles are just the ticket. They have all the features and performance of a "regular" trekking pole - stiff, contoured grip, tapered shaft, wrist strap and carbide tip - except the weight (4.3 oz for 120 cm length). And, at about $100, they are among the least expensive carbon poles. One catch - plan on leaving the baskets on once you install them.
