[at-l] Poles

I have Leki Super Malakus.  I used to use ski poles.  As far as I have noticed
so far , there are 4 advantages to justify the cost.  Anyone else have more?

1.  I love being able to change the length of the poles.  I feel so much safer
going down with them this way.  

2.  I can shorten them up and they fit perfect on the sides of my pack when
travelling by train to the trail.

3.  They are really tough and I do clear trail with them.  As a matter of
fact, because of extreme stupidity on my part, I actually ran over them with
my car and absolutely no damage occurred.

4.  I slipped on wet rocks near the edge of a cliff and they stopped me from
sliding.  Great tips.
