My MLD Duomid pole set up – simple and light

I recently purchased some new trekking poles to use with my TrekkerTent Stealth and in the process I’ve sorted myself a super light and quick way of joining poles together for my MLD Duomid.

The current poles I use are Mounatin King Super Trekker Compact which are cheap and light and have taken some severe battering over the years and coped well. But at a maximum 130cm fully extended they’re not long enough to use as an A-frame with the Stealth which requires 135-140cm poles. To replace these I settled on a pair of Fizan Broadpeak 3, which at 240g a piece are still a decent weight.
