Heads up that these are on sale at Costco now, $5 off to bring them to $24.99 (iirc). I didn't look at how long the sale goes, but I just saw it today. Bought a backup pair because I live in fear of doing something terrible to mine in Costco's off-sale season and not being able to replace them. They really are great.
The thing that pushed me to finally pull the trigger on a backup pair is that I did do something pretty terrible to mine recently, basically fell on one and watched it bend, fully expecting it to snap, but it sprang right back no issues. The only thing really wrong with mine is the paint marking the heights is pretty well worn off. And I am very hard on them.
Anyway, the beauty of buying from Costco is you can just take them back if there's any issue.
