Meh.
No doubt some people do need a walking stick but the vast majority are idiots who feel they need a hideous stick to be a real rambler.
Stone cold for me at any price.

No doubt some people need to comment on a thread but the vast majority are idiots who feel they need to make dummo comments to be a real internet moron.

Hot from me, since 2 sticks for a fiver is very cheap and may benefit someone who actually needs them. Voting cold doesn't help those who have a genuine need.

What's wrong with some folk?
If you needed one you'd get one from hospital.

For everyone else they're a waste of money, I've hiked thousands of miles without need of one and every fool I see using them doesn't need them either, just been suckered in to get them

ut enought
what a load of *carp*...walking poles help reduce stress on joints and tendons. Having just come down from Ben Nevis these would have been more than just handy. To assume that everyone has robust and supple joints or that they are a fashion accessory is dumb.
me and the gf went to wales on a whim at the weekend. We did some hiking and me in shorts and t-shirt and gf in her flowery dress skipped pass many "north face hiker". Buy all the expensive stuff and then realise they are carrying so much that the very things they've bought for help are what are slowing them down. Remember your skin is waterproof - if you're hiking during day light and you know when it becomes too cold, wet or dangerous (ie common sense) so you turn back then you ain't gonna die in the hills by packing light.

A comfy light pair of trainers, some light clothing, some water, a cereal bar or two each, a can of ale for when you reach the top with a good breakfast behind ya will get up most of the highest peaks in the UK twice as fast as the rest.

Admittedly, we're all not 20 or 30 somethings any more but I'm of the opinion, polls like these are useless for the majority of situations they are bought for. I'm not saying the deal is cold though, just the product is generally useless for most of us.

Get over it fool only geeks use these stupid sticks move on.
Loads of people I know have a set attached to the rucsac, they stab you in the eye if you follow them over a stile too close.

Whilst no doubt a walking stick does relieve pressure on your legs, they also make the walk considerably more effort in that you're also using your arms.

As for you kanester, agree about the poles and maybe you cans skip past more serious hikers. However remember that they're mostly out for a full days hiking (20+ miles) whether its nice or not, so they have got waterproofs and equipment. They haven't just stepped out their cars and bimbled up a hill
