I'm going to get a set of trekking poles. I want to use them for hauling heavy loads, but I'm also going to use it as my monopod for my 15x binocs. Because of that, I can't use the folding style poles and need ones that "slide and lock". Which ones should I get and why? Brand wise I'm leaning heavily towards Leki and Black Diamon. I looked at the Black Diamond poles fairly closely and there are a ton of options and I really have no idea which ones I should get. Any info appreciated...
