Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Women's Trail Shock Trekking Poles:

I bought these for my wife after owning the Trail Shock poles. Overall, these are great poles just like the men's version. All the reviews for that pole would apply to this pole. I just wanted to comment on a few of the features specific to the women's version since there were no reviews when I bought them. They are lighter (1 oz) due to a length reduction. The interior of the wrist strap is a softer, thicker material, like a thick fleece – but this absorbs a lot more sweat (and rain) and they started to irritate the top of her wrists. The poles appear to be anodized a grey color which I thought would be good to differentiate her poles from mine. This color scratches off on rocks, etc. though. Her poles look older than mine after only one use because on the men's version, it is plain aluminum and the scratch blends in as opposed to taking color off and showing the aluminum underneath. Still fully functional, just a cosmetic issue.

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Women's Trail Shock Trekking Poles:

    OK, so I'm not really a minimalist...I try, but enjoy some comfort. These poles have been on my list for over a year and I finally saw them at the right price and wasn't going to miss the opportunity. The shock absorption really does make a difference, so not only are my knees better off...so are my arms. I used to not use poles at all. I thought about them as one more thing to carry, but when I tested these out (a friend's), I was hooked. Walk farther...go more places...and love it!
