Just got them. I ordered the basic model
TG2141-00). They weigh 16 and 1/4 oz. putting them slightly lighter than the
website indicates. I agree the instruction book provided leaves a lot to be
desired. I would almost believe it is for a different model. After a close
inspection I figured out the way to adjust the strap, I think, is to pull the
upper most strap to increase the loop size or the lower most strap to decrease
the loop size. Maybe I just slow today but instructions sure would have helped.
They are beautiful poles though. The feel much lighter than the MSR Grabel's
I've been using even if the scales say there is only about a 3 oz. difference.
These do not have the positive angle I'm used to but I wanted to see if there
was that much of a difference. With a little luck I'll get to go play with
