Let your poles do the talking.
Leki's Checker X Ski Pole is just the ticket when you're getting rowdy in the park. The eye-catching aluminum shaft will catch eyes without taking attention away from your double corks, and the soft rubber grip will keep your poles securely in hand when you're tweaking out your grabs. Powder baskets let you venture off the trail without sinking all the way in, and the steel tips dig into hardpack when you're pole whacking like a maniac.

If you don't want to break the bank, but also don't want to break your poles, this is the pole for you. It's a good solid pole, without being too expensive. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles, but the graphics make up for that. Also, they didn't skimp on the handle. It has a natural shape and feel, and the wrist straps are easy to use, if that's your thing.
I'm 5'8. I prefer the 115 length.
