May 1, 2009, Newsletter Issue #23: Adjustable Poles, or Not

Tip of the Week

I agree with the comments from Pete The Ski Walking Guy that perfectly fitted solid poles are ideal. I haven't had the problems with adjustable poles that he mentions, and I think they are quite adequate for most people, especially if you want to travel with them or share them with another person. Best technique for Nordic walking doesn't have you putting your weight on the poles. If you have balance problems or intend to use your poles for rugged trekking as well as Nordic walking, go with the solid poles. Of course, you can always have two sets of poles for different excursions. This is still very inexpensive for such a great sport and/or fitness activity.
