Greetings Outdoor Adventurers, The original Fizan Compact Trekking Poles have been a favorite here on Massdrop every since we started selling them. They have the strongest twist-lock mechanisms, and are one of the lightest collapsible and adjustable poles in the world, at a fraction of the price of the nearest competitors. We have taken the comments and reviews from the thousands of members who bought the original poles, and working with Fizan over the last year to come up with this Massdrop exclusive. The new Compact poles sport a reshaped grip, a soft, smooth strap, a burlier grippier hiking tip cover, and a third set of larger baskets that will be useful in snow or sand. I used to think trekking poles were unnecessary and even dorky, but that was when I was first getting into backpacking as a college student. One winter I went on a particularly treacherous 3-day trip along the California coast, where we hit rain, hail, swollen river crossings, and numerous steep up and downs. The poles saved that trip and I became a convert. I now recommend poles for most people, regardless of how often or hard you hike, or how much you carry. It helps you going uphill, saves your knees on the downhill, stabilizes you on rocks and river crossings, and can help you avoid injury from falling. I find that it helps me keep a nice pace, regardless of speed. And for many of us, poles are useful for serving double-duty as part of our shelter structure. I'm really excited about these poles because we're talking the most affordable, reliable ultralight poles and making them better, based on your feedback.

I bought my set of the 3 section poles about 2 years ago when they were offered on Massdrop. I've got alot of miles on them, but unfortunately, bent a pole on what I thought was solid ground. User caused damage and had nothing to do with the quality or the build of the Fizan. Trying to track down a replacement section took some time and Massdrop pretty much told me I'm on my own. I ended up finding a dealer in New Hampshire who shipped me a replacement section if I would cover shipping. The poles are as good as new and have performed flawlessly since. I think when I first bought them they were $49, so still, at $60, they are a great deal for some of the lightest poles on the market today.

I just had the aluminum shaft of one section of one pole fracture during the tightening process. Specifically tightening created a hairline fracture at the point where the locking mechanism presses on the inside of the pole. Is there a warranty? How can I get a replacement pole section?

I know parts for these aren't the easiest to find, so I'll offer up what I have. I cracked the mid section of one of my poles, so I have the expanders (red and blue), baskets, tips, and all the sections other than one middle section. Just leave a kudos if you need to get into contact with me, we'll figure something out.

Serious question: anyone have a single pole they wish to part with? My dog chewed my grip. I attempted to email Fizan, but didn't get a response. (I'll pay!)
