Light and durable. I subject mine to a lot of punishment and they've held up great -- so far! Testing is still in progress, but it's looking good.

The first thing you note of these poles is the quality of the finish and the care of the details. Then, when you use them, you realize how strong they are. A bit expensive, maybe,but must be considered a long run investment.
