[Topic: Hiking poles question]

So after hiking Mailbox peak today I realized how useful trekking/hiking poles are. So, a question for ya'll:

Does it matter if I get a generic, women-specific, or anti-shock pair? Besides the obvious price difference, do I gain anything by getting the anti-shock stuff? Women-specific stuff?



REI Summit Trekking Poles - Pair $60.00


REI Trek-Lite Women's Trekking Poles - Pair $90.00


REI Ultralite Anti-Shock Trekking Poles - Pair $99.00


Suggestions, comments about your experiences welcomed (and needed!)

Gracias, Godspeed, and Happy Trails :)
