It can be bought with a light weight of 5 to 8,000 yen.
The same carbon snow poles, but because of the difference in lightness and firmness, the price will fluctuate more or less.
Usually, the most expensive pole is about 25,000 yen, and if it is a race, it is about 35,000.
This is not because of the meagerness but the degree of solidity. The competitive style of the pole is more important than the light weight.

But if carbon fiber is used to enhance its strength, it is very expensive.
So far, the poles for competitions or synchronized skiing (high-altitude rotation) still use the strongest aluminum as the mainstream.
In the store, pick up the pole and look for it.
There will be a good grip and the price is quite affordable.
