Trekking poles consensus

What are the most popular brand and model of trekking poles used here by the forum users?
I'm looking in the $100.00 range.

Black Diamonds with flick locks are really good.

I've gotten to the point I don't normally use them though unless packing heavy, and then only one.

My wiife bought poles from Costco after her knee replacements.
No other brands to compare, she is satisfied with them
