Panda Poles might not be your cheapest option when it comes to your sticks but the peace of mind you gain from knowing they are as Earth friendly as ski poles get, makes every penny spent well worth it. FIVE STARS.
The Grips: "Their grips are beyond any other grips I’ve tried over the
years. They’re plush and grippy and they come in four length options for
those backcountry enthusiasts..."
The Baskets: "The baskets are probably my favorite feature of the
Panda pole. No other company seems to be doing this but their tee-pee
style baskets really do result in less drag. Not only that but they are
cut in a certain way that really provides excellent grip when you’re
polling through the flats..."
The Bamboo Ski Wands: "Two choices. Either the RA bamboo which is grown in Vietnam or the Toasty bamboo
which is grown in India. Both come with a two year warranty, not that
you will need it."
