[pct-l] Information on using hiking poles

I am looking for information from any PCT or other hikers who use hiking
poles.  Do you feel the poles are of value?  One versus two?  Homemade
versus store bought?  Can you give some experiences of hiking without them
to hiking with them?

If you have tried them and don't like them, what were the deciding factors?

This is both for personal use and research for a piece I am writing.
