9 out of 10
I like these trekking poles quite a bit. The poles are sturdy, and have really saved my knees. The flick locks are amazing, they have never slipped on me and they are easy to use. However, the Binary adjustments while they are light and have never slipped, are annoying to retract. It always seems to take me 5 minutes of tinkering to get it to work.

Pros
~ Tough and light
~ The flick locks are amazing
~ Comes with different baffle attachments
~ Can be used for skiing
~ I really like the cork grips

Cons
~ Binary adjustments can be tricky to collapse
