Everything sounds good except for the lack of measurement marks. I don’t adjust frequently, but I do like to dial it in at steep ascents and descents. Just curious, why no marks? The hand-adjustable lock bolts are nice; my poles’ locks require an allen wrench.

Your video is compelling. I’d like to be alerted when these are in-stock with you, Lloyd. Though the EVA is your favorite for grippy cush… I’d like to purchase the cork grips as it is made fully in the USA.
Thanks for teaching us about new developments like CNOC and so many other excellent innovators.
Everything you have taught me and sold through GGG has been far better quality than my old school suppliers and the outdoors co-op near my home where my membership since 1970 sits idle. You get us the best.

Hey Keith!

No t-handle grips for now, but something that CNOC might do in the future. The poles themselves weight 7oz each!

Can I get a pair with the t-handle grips? I have back and hip issues that effect my mobility and require the extra support that comes from the horizontal grip, i.e. Mountainsmith. What is the weight of a pole? Thanx! Best to you with your start-up!
