Hey everyone,
I’m new here on the forums but excited to be here!
We’re a family owned company who is currently in the developmental process of what we’re looking to classify as a upper-tier Trekking Pole set.
With this being said, I would love it if I could hear it from people who genuinely use Trekking Poles:
What features would you like to see on a Trekking Pole? This could range anywhere from including a detachable light feature to seeing poles with a more “Matte” Finish aesthetic.
Thank you all for your time, looking forward to hearing your feedback

Once we've completely designed our pole I'll be giving away some on here as well to show my thanks for the assistance.

1. Easy to replace tips
2. cork grips
3. double grip (upper lower set up)
3. custom sizes (to eliminate hardware weights)
4. If adjustable, flick locks of lightweight durable materials (not plastic)
5. Ultralight but very strong pole material 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
