I have impaired mobility due to poor balance. Nordic walking has been a revelation to me as it gives me a feeling of freedom. These poles work really well for me as they don't have too much flex in them so are good at aiding balance but are still comfortable for longer outings. I can get plenty of power through my shoulders to propel myself along and feel steady and safe
The handles are comfortable. However, I have only used them so far in cold weather while wearing gloves so I can't comment on how they cope with perspiration.
The detachable gauntlets for me are an essential feature and work well for Nordic walking technique. They are also quick and easy to click in and out.
The tips so far have done a good job of gripping soft ground as well as harder, stony paths and frozen mud. I haven't used the rubber paws much but they appear to be ok.
How could these poles be improved? I think for the price they are great value. They provide a fun walk and look as though they'll last a long time. One thing I would like is to be able to buy spare gauntlets and interchangeable tips.
