Default Moon Poles

Anyone remember moon poles? I always like them - had a lower end
pair, but they worked good. Does anyone remember what types of moon
poles were made, who made them, where they were made and when they
stopped making them?

I still have a pair of aluminum touring poles, which I bought some
time in the '70s. I think that they were made in Sweden. There were
also Moon racing poles. Don't know the answers to the other
questions.

Default Moon Poles

I used to rep Moon poles in the early 80's when I was the Edsbyn Ski
Rep. They were made in Sweden. All I remember were aluminum poles, no
fiberglass, but I'm sure they made them or were going to at some
point. THey made racing and touring poles. A distinctive round "moon-
shaped" basket.

I was trying to figure this out too. Sweden is what I think. My dad had a pair skiing in Swedish Vasaloppet and was looking them up after seeing some pictures
