Here's the modern equivalent:
I orded one at the beginning of this season and most likely won't go back to using poles at the resort (well, maybe at least until the novelty wears off). I recommend it for any kayaker-telemarker since it is a similar feel as your paddle. But I'm not quite sold on the lurk for backcountry even though it breaks down (still a bit heavy and clumsy for poling but convenient for the lift) .
Oh, and it's a great conversation piece. When asked impolitely, I tend to explain that it is a medical device prescribed by my proctologist and that usually shuts 'em up.
