Don't need a helmet, got a hard, hard head
Don't need a raincoat, I'm already wet
Don't need a bandage, there's too much...blood...
After a while, seems to roll right off...hmm...

Whippet, ah...the whippet, ah...
...the whippet, ah...the whippet...

I use the pair of poles when skiing inbounds. I don't use the whippet on the resorts. The temptation to eviscerate an "out of control yaaho" is just too much. I also use the whippet during "spicier" backcountry situations. I have also found it useful as a climbing tool on talus fields. I have found the sparing of parts (3 bottoms) to be rather convenient.
Did I mention that "I hate postholing"
