This opened my eyes. I have been looking at folding poles for months, now I am thinking of sticking with the extendable ones. Love your videos, man! Keep them coming! Looking forward to your review of the poles.

Telescopic for me as well. Had shock cord break on the trail once using some pricey collapsables. Useless.

i’ve been watch your vids one after the other. Some good horse sense advice. Don’t understand the subscriber count. Maybe you need to forget the 2 minute reviews and just rant and rave like everybody else for an hour? :)

Would you be willing to compare foam vs cork handles?  I love your videos, by the way.

SectionHiking says:

Great points about the poles! Thanks!

Stu Minnis says:

Here’s another advantage of telescoping poles. If you use your poles to pitch a tarp, telescoping poles give you much more range of height and therefore more pitch options for different weather conditions.

Love these pithy, (and mercifully-short-in-comparison-to-the-normal-rambling-youtuber) review/comment videos! You communicate clearly and in a fun way!
Having said that, surely the main storage benefit of the folding poles is that they can fit inside your pack. This is of great benefit on flights, even when the bag has to be checked. – less to get torn off by conveyor belts or “lost” by baggage handlers!
