    I switched to aluminum ski poles. I had a pair of telescopic pole before that were a combination of aluminum (top two section and carbon graphite (lower section) the bottom section would flex but not break. However, they were soft overall and wanted a pole that dos not flex as easy. I would consider aluminum! Overall, I am not sure how much the pole effects my skiing so it is not where I put my $'s!

    Your poles don't need to be expensive, but your poles are the most underrated piece of equipment. And, your pole plant is the most underrated, but one of the most important tools in your skiing arsenal.
