Easy In Strap: A velcro strap that is easy to get in and out of, and can be adjusted to fit just about any size hand/wrist.
Powder and Standard Baskets: Both are included with these poles, and can easily be switched back and forth, thanks to the threaded tip. Just unscrew and screw back on the ones you need for the day's conditions.
Canada Products: These products are primarily red and white. Represent your country.
Composite Shaft: The Shaft of this pole is made up of a fiberglass composite, which gives the pole incredible strength and flexibility. This does not have any carbon in it, so it?s a little heavier than a carbon composite pole, but very cost effective.
Sublimated Graphics: The graphics of this pole are not painted on. They are sublimated into the pole fibers (dyed then baked) so they won't just chip off like painted graphics.

- OK but not greatReview by Kocho
I have a pair of "rental" style Rossignol composite poles that are thicker and feel lighter, especially in terms of swing weight. Not by much, but noticeable. That is before attaching the baskets.
The baskets themselves feel heavy and don't have openings and cutouts like other baskets to lighten them up; and look like they are not very sturdy.
Being so thin, the Royal poles are somewhat more flexible than the thicker Rossi, which in turn are more flexible than aluminum poles. I also have a few pairs of cheap aluminum poles from other brands - they are all lighter and stiffer than these Royal poles. These thin fiberglass poles do not inspire enough confidence in being very strong.
I will try them soon and if I have issues with them will report back. OK at the sale price of about $20 but I think there are better options out there for the same money or a bit more. (Posted on 3/8/2016)

- FragileReview by Martin
Cons: baskets and tip assemblies break easily
This is my third set of Royal shaft poles and I like them but the baskets have broken and I can't find replacements anywhere. The first time I used these one of the tip assemblies broke off too. (Posted on 2/10/2014)

Awesome for the price, very lightweight and strong. Amazingly tough and versatile. Unfortunately one basket broke on a really cold day, and no spares or extras to purchase @ Level9! (Posted on 2/3/2014)
- Poling For DollarsReview by snowrider
Location: Vancouver, BC
This is a patriot's dream ski pole: light, thin, strong, ergonomic grip, easy-on velcro-adjustable strap, with user-swappable baskets for powder or groomers. And I got them for a song...a song that sounded like Oh, Canada! (That's the Canadian anthem, eh?) (Posted on 12/7/2013)
