Trekmates Peak Walker Antishock

   Trekmates Peak Walker Antishock Reviews

  Reviewed by Tom Stewardson (Lancaster) on 2011-01-04:
General comments: I bought a pair of these for general hillwalking in the Lakes and to prop up my bivi tarp when camping light. As a pair they worked as a trekking pole generally should; I got uphill quicker and with less tiredness and got downhill with less knee pain. The antishock works quite nicely, but there is no function to turn it off like on some Leki poles. Unfortunately during my first 3-day trip with them, it became obvious that one pole had bent, and then the other. They are only slight bends, so they still fold up with a bit of a struggle, and I built one straight pole from the good sections and I use that on its own unless I'm carrying heavy stuff. The baskets provided are quite small, and definitely for mud, not snow. I lost a tip protector fairly quickly, but I got into the habit of picking up lost tips covers whenever I saw them (not hard on the Corridor Route and similar). The length markings on the middle section were partially rubbed off by a bit of grit caught in the upper pole - the paint seems to come off easily, particularly when wet. They are slightly heavy for a 3-section pole but it's pretty much what you expect for the price. Overall you can't go terribly far wrong for 15 and if you're just looking for something to prop your tarp with, these are probably for you.

Pros: Cheap, good antishock, does what it should.

Cons: Seemed to bend easily, length markings easily rubbed off, baskets not great, quite heavy.
