Hi

Trekking poles are always sold as pairs (unless specifically indicated otherwise) as far as I am aware.

Cheers

Actually, they're not... my current *one* was bought singly, the way every one in the shop was sold. I have a disability and use one as a "new and improved" walking stick on walks on uneven or unstable ground. Hence my question - if there are two it's a good price and I have a spare, if it's one, well it's too dear for me.

Hi

My mistake....my comment was poorly worded. Should have stated that I personally have only ever seen them sold as pairs. ...and that in this instance it would also appear to be the case given that two are shown in the picture....but I could be wrong. I shouldn't have butted in given that I am only guessing.

Cheers
Greg

..think the wording on the shop item in question has been altered subsequent to this thread being initiated to make it clearer that the picture of the two poles and the use of the word "poles" does in fact mean there are two poles included.....

...though the sales pitch now states that they are "sold as a pair of 2 poles" which suggests 4 poles are in fact included :)

Cheers

Just on value.....that price @ each could well be good buying....we trek a fair bit (ok...'crumbly trekking' that is) and bought Leki poles 10 years back @ $120 each.....still like new and destined to outlast us. We also bought spare poles at the Reject shop @ $10 each ! ..... and they are surprisingly good for the $. BOL with your pole project.

It is for two poles/a pair, I have already asked the shop that question.

Contact me (MM is best) later this week and I'll let you know what they are like after the pair I have ordered arrive.
I don't profess to be a expert on poles though.

Hi Bomberz,

I would just like to confirm that the price is for the pair (2 poles). I hope this information helps, and if you require any further assistance, please just let me know.
