Masters poles are based and made in Italy and have been in the pole business for 40 years and the trekking pole business since 1994.
They take pride in being as environmentally friendly as possible and run their building almost completely on photovoltaic power. See their environmental program here: http://www.masters.it/en/azienda/pagina-eco/
Masters is a leading edge pole manufacturer and uses several different shaft materials from aluminum to carbon as well as the hybrid “Calu” material on their top-of-the-line poles. They also use different locking/adjusting mechanisms based on materials, applictions, and price range. It is a full range of products covering the entire use and price spectrums. You can view their summer 2017 product line at http://www.masters.it/en/categoria-prodotto/outdoor/ but of course it would be better to see them in person.
