Does anyone here use trekking poles? I shopped around for some and they seem to be quite expensive and come in a huge variety. I looked at some Eddie Bauer poles at Target and they seemed pretty sturdy but nothing real special ($40). Walmart sells a real cheap pole too ($10) and it looks every bit of cheap.
So my question is...what, if any, trekking pole do you use out on the trails? I think the wooden poles are the sturdiest, but also the heaviest. I plan on using it everywhere, from Colorado snow to the rocks of New Mexico.
