Top 5 best running poles for 2020 here for trail and ultra runners, adjustable and fixed length z-poles including the Black Diamond Distance Z, Leki Micro Trail Vario, Mountain King Trail Blaze Carbon Skyrunner, Ultimate Direction FK Ultra and Harrier Helvellyn poles. 

Since shooting this review, the prices online have gone down for most, nice! But if you can support your local independent outdoor shop that is even better.
