If you know your history, then you would know where you coming from, then you wouldn't have to ask me, who the heck do I think I am.

yeah 130 is a bit big, I use 130 and I apparently have long legs. I think komperdell made some poles called the "powder babe", they had them at MEC, come stock with pow baskets, ovalized shaft, adn a pretty sweet grip, all in baby blue.

BD makes a nice carbon fiber, adjustable pole. Go with that so she can tour, and still use on hill,
If you get a non adjustable, most are shortenable so go 130cm, but like others have said that is very long for 5 10.

If you go adjustable just make sure they stay at the length you set them at. I have a pair I don't even use for touring because they slip and are such a PITA.
Otherwise... you've gotta know what she likes. There were some hot pink poles with flowers on them last year that I thought looked cool. But we already have 14 sets of poles in the garage and I couldn't find any reason to buy more... But some chicks hate flowers and stuff. The ones I use most of the time are orange z-bends. And then I also have a set of composite Scotts that are nice."Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow, what a Ride!"

Go carbonfiber. They don't bend, and I have yet tp break one. Super light. I never thought poles made that big a difference until I got my Scott carbons. They are worth the few extra bucks.

I broke 4 carbon poles in one year. First one (SWIX) was poling and skating my ass off to get speed for a jump. Pushed too hard and it snapped. Second one (SWIX) broke after I landed a front flip in some dense pow. The baskets are small and the bottom of the pole didnt want to follow the top as I skied away. I had two more Goodes break apart in similar circumstances. I've since gone with the Leki AluCarbon poles with a tube of aluminum covering the carbon on the top half of the ski. They are also trigger poles. I've been on them for three seasons with no problems. I LOVE them.

I have this pole:
Its been pretty good. The bottom 4" or so of the pole is aluminum, so it stands up to damage from ski edges much better than the carbon fiber.

Our site has an education center for such a deal.
check it here http://levelninesports.com/pole_sizing.php
granted it is in inches.
Royal Shaft (girlie poles) here http://levelninesports.com/advanced_...haft&x=31&y=37
5' 8" translates on the chart to - 48" pole (roughly 120cm's)
all my poles in a 48 are available on the site at low low prices - check 'em out
