Trekking poles are extremely useful and must have equipment for any hiker, whether you’re a novice walker or trekking through the Himalayas. Unlike a walking stick, using a pair of trekking poles provides you much more stability and balance, and more importantly is a means of distributing the stress on your knees and ankles to your arms and back. If you’ve never used trekking poles, give it a try – your knees will be much happier the next time you hike.

I've never used them before. But I just scored some Black Diamond poles on ebay for $31, they are gently used and I think retail for around $100. The guy had cut the baskets smaller for some odd reason, and I think this is why they went so cheap. Duhhh, I went to the store and got some new baskets for 7 bucks. They are very sturdy and I am excited to try them out.
