    I really liked the rubber tips on my trekking poles, but didn't realize how much until one of the rock packed trails ate one of my tips. I was lucky in that I didn't lose the first tip until the second half of the trip. The second tip, however, was fast to follow. I found that on creek crossings and on the trail in general, the rubber gave a little extra grip (non slip).
    Two pairs would probably do you for the whole trip.
    I did see a lot of the longer rubber thin tips on the trail. Mine were the shorter, thicker ones (for Black Diamond trekking poles). 

    I've attached a pic of the type of trail that ate my tips. Not sure what it's called, but beware!

    I'm considering these for the JMT next year but am wondering about durability. Will a pair last for 200+ miles of High Sierra hiking?
