I am taking up hiking again on weekends, and also trying to do more walking to get out of the house of an evening.
REI has an interesting article on Trekking Poles, and in the article it states:
Nordic walking poles are a modified version of trekking poles. REI does not currently carry poles designed for Nordic walking.
But it gives no actual details what the modifications are.
So: how is a nordic pole different than a trekking pole? Can I at all realistically use one for both purposes, and what will I be trading off if I do?
