someone stole my trekking poles so i needed a new pair, their not super cheap so i improvised, had an old set of golf clubs. using a hacksaw cut the club head off two clubs. then cut the grip off 1 club, bam. stick the one into the other and you have a trekking pole. drill a hole threw the top grip and run some para cord thru!. used them on a 3.6 mile hike in the Adirondacks over the weekend, worked perfect.
