This is a very good value item. It is sturdy and light and has many of the features of poles that cost 5 times as much. The cork grips are a particularly good feature. They are grippy but never get sweaty and slippery. The small scree baskets can be replaced with standard snow baskets if necessary.
The only improvement I would look for would be forward angled cork handles (which are good for the wrists on long hauls), but the only ones I've seen that have that feature cost much more.
