Now there's something I hadn't thought of. I have heard of people switching to the Gossamer Gear poles and finding that it takes a while to get used to the feel (although they all seem to end up liking them). But I was under the impression that if you were using heavier poles at a certain length then you would get your Gossamer Gear poles at the same length. But I haven't made that switch so I'll defer to your experience. Do you think that a length preference based on a heavier pole will tell you what length of Gossamer Gear pole you would want? If not would you want a shorter or a longer pair?
