    Excellent Product!

    The Sissy Stix are amazing, have used several times now. I love how easy they are to pack and unpack as well as how light they are. Excellent product.

    Didn't come with any directions, spent hours on line trying to figure out how to use, emailed, ca...

    Not everyone is tent, pole savvy. As much as I paid for these poles you would think they would have just a little note card or even 5x7 on how to use for us first timers.

    Must have

    These sticks were a life saver this past September. They are so compact and light that I always had them with me, which turned out to be a blessing. My buddy killed a bull deep in the backcountry and it was just him and I. Thankfully I had my SISSY STIX with me to help balance the massive load. Multiple times the sticks bent to a point I thought they were going to break (no doubt any other brand would have). They proved to be worth the price, and my buddy (who said I was crazy for spending so much) is going to buy a pair this year. Thanks for a fantastic product!

    The backcountry Z stood up to a 4 week backpacking trip my 15 year old took where he used them every step of the way. They came back with the lower aluminum section beat up pretty badly but still functioning perfectly. I’ve seen him destroy many inferior tools so this says a lot about the quality of the product.

    An asset in the mountains.

    I have put these poles through a beating in some very steep and rocky country. They save me knees some ponding going down and are like 4 wheel drive going up. I will not head out without them.
