I received the Activator poles and I’ve been using them a lot. For the first few days I alternated between my standard walking poles and the Activator poles. There is quite a difference. The Activator poles are more comfortable to hold. I feels more stable because of the bell-shaped tips, especially on uneven surfaces. I like the button-locking feature and the strip to help you line up the holes. I was never sure if I had the twist adjustment tight enough on my old pair. I would highly recommend the Activator poles over standard walking poles

I LOVE the ACTIVATOR poles! My gait was noticeably better immediately. It’s so nice to be able to stand up straight. My only issue is pacing myself; I want to use it full time!

 

Going downhill

For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
