good purchase, good company
arrived on time and in excellent condition. Haven't really used yet as the temps in Texas are 100 plus at the moment. The grips are comfortable as stated in ads. Also adjustments were precise and solid. Looking forward to using them soon. Will update review later.
Haven't seen anything I didn't like so far.
Solid trekking poles
They’re a solid all around trekking poles. The cork handles feel great after a looong day of hiking and you can adjust the poles fairly easily. I’ve heard complaints of the tip breaking but haven’t had any problems after a few hikes. I’ve come to love Black Diamond gear as I have had no issues with any of their gear.
None so far!
Excellent product & unbeatable price
- Lightweight but sturdy - Cheap - Comfortable grip
- Not as shock-absorbent
Perfect trekking poles
Im not experienced using trekking poles and really doubted my need for them. Boy am I glad I tried these! They make the backpacking experience so much more enjoyable. The cork handles are very comfortable and work great even with sweaty hands. The construction and adjustability of these poles are top notch! Highly recommended!
These are great trekking poles
These poles are great. The cork grip is comfortable and easy to hold when hands are wet from sweat or rain. The clamps on the two section adjustments are difficult to open and close but it does provide a feeling of security. I don't feel like they will break with repeated use. The nylon straps are easy to adjust by pulling on just one side of the loop.
I am NOT a fan of the newer locking systems. The twist lock stuffed worked great and was sleeker making t'poles easier to stash. However, the design on the locks on these BD poles ain't bad. No hard edges. And they seem to keep their positions OK. I like the ergonomic cork handles. Replaced the metal tips with the plastic. While they may be a bit more slippery, they are quiet. No more "clack...clack...". Love it! Overall, I had a set from another provider but, after some...unusual...treatment when one broke, I sold those and bought these. I like these WAY better. If axed, I would definitely recommend these.
As mentioned, the newer locking mechanisms. The handle straps don't seem to want to stay where I adjust them.
