The Line Dart Ski Pole has skinny grips inspired by mountain and BMX bikes, and super-grippy handles, making holding onto the Dart Pole comfortable. Made from burly 6,000 series aluminum, these ski poles are not only strong but lightweight as well.
The Line Dart Ski Poles aren't too fat or too skinny—they're just right. Tough and light aluminum keeps the swing weight low, while the 28mm mountain-bike-style grips have a design that's actually easy to get your hands around.
The Line Dart is a perfect pole for freeriders. The mountain bike style grip has a grab tab, and plenty of texture to keep you hands relaxed and comfortable as you rip up some gnarly terrain. Made from 6000 grade aluminum the Dart is strong and durable, just in case you crash and wrap it around a tree. The tips are sharp enough to stab powder and ice as you hike up some steep cirque. The Dart also comes with 60mm baskets for staying in bounds, and 80mm baskets for when you feel like charging some pow.

Overall I really like these poles. They feel very study, the grips are very sticky on my gloves, and the baskets are easy to change. They're also very light. No complaints for your basic resort pole.
I like the look of these poles, and the grip is great.
I am worried about the baskets. This pole comes with two baskets that you can screw off by hand (every day basket (60 mm) and a powder day basket (80 mm)). Changing the baskets is not easy because the plastic on the baskets is extremely soft. The thread used to screw on the baskets does not seem like it will hold up to a season of constant changing. I believe by the middle of the season the thread on the baskets will be completely stripped. The idea is great, but it needs more engineering.
Update: Well one of my poles snapped in half yesterday on the hill. The poles were not bent at all prior to this. Clean break at a beefy part of the pole (see photo). Surprising because I'm not a big person (5'6" 140). Based on what other people are saying about Line poles--maybe I received a bad pole?
However, I never had a problem with the baskets like I thought I would.
