I have bout a pair of those poles along with a Notch Li. The suggested length is 114 cm (45 in) and they turned out to be almost 116 cm (46 in). This is too long for the Notch. I was not able to get the ridge taut and it was sagging badly.
As shown in the set up video at https://vimeo.com/tarptent/notchli, the trekking pole should be set to a length of 110 cm (~43 in). Having tried with my trekking poles, I can confirm that his is about the right length.
Having a look at the pole, I found they are easy to shorten. I intend do so by shortening each segment by 2 cm. This will maintaining an even segment length and will result in less pack length.
The actual weight of a pole is 111.5 g which is less than the advertised 113 g. Once I have done the shortening, weight will drop even further.
Although I have some work ahead, I am satisfied with that purchase.
