TWIST LOCKS CAN TAKE A SECOND TO CATCH IF DIRTY – Let us begin this point by saying that we never felt like the twist lock was going to come loose after it was set. But some mornings when we were adjusting the poles to our desired length, the sections would twist for a while without the locks engaging. From what we could tell, this occurred when there was fine dust on the twist lock.
WRIST STRAPS COME LOOSE EASILY – This isn’t a huge deal, but the wrist straps sit somewhat loosely in the handles. This makes them easy to adjust, but it also means they come loose quite easily. We had to adjust them fairly frequently.
