Scott WC poles are the best combo of strength (not flexy), and weight (not too heavy), with a comfy grip and strap. I bought these to replace my previous pair because my brother drove over them in his truck :-(
Otherwise, i would still be using my old pair which were going strong after 10+ seasons!
These poles are great, I used to strickly use Swix poles but I had to have the green color and I couldn't be happier. I have very small hands and the fingers on the grip aren't too pronounced to make them uncomfortable since my hands don't span the entire grip.
Q: Hi again, I have another question about the Scott WC SL poles. The ones displayed on your site appear different than the ones on Amazon I just looked at. The graphics on those are black/ green vs just Green. Also the ones on your site have cone tips, whereas the ones on Amazon have ice tips and the straps look shorter. Ideally, I'd like the longer straps and the ice tips. Are the models from either site from 2 different years. Thanks, John
A:The image of the pole comes from the Scott, that image also shows the tip protectors on the poles that Scott uses to ship them with. To the best of my knowledge they have a pretty standard strap length. I do not have specific measurements, nor am I aware of any longer straps. It is hard to tell exactly what Amazon listing that you are looking at.
