Trekking Pole Tip Protector - 2017 is rated out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Scott from So close to perfect, but critically flawed. The surface of the tip is great. It's quiet on the trail and has good grip. Unfortunately, unlike the other two pole tip options, both of which are much worse for general use, this tip does not screw on. You just stick the pole tip into it and hope it stays on. It doesn't. I have so far lost two. This would not be a big deal if I didn't hate polluting. But, I have now left one of these somewhere between rocks in the Himalayas and another in the mud in Costa Rica. I will try Krazy Gluing the tip on this time and hope it sticks. But, please Black Diamond, make a new version of this tip that screws on like the other tips you make do. This is a show-stoppingly bad design for an otherwise near perfect tip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank from Ideal for Black Diamond and other Trekking Poles I found this searching for a replacement protector for another trekking pole whose original protectors wore early. I'm a daily pole user and need a rubber surface to avoid slipping on linoleum tile, etc. This protector has an embedded washer that keeps whatever pole's carbide/steel tip from wearing through prematurely and is quite durable. They are easily removed as necessary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Julie from Disappointed-not as advertised This product's information states, "Works on all BD trekking poles except the First Strike and Distance Series Z-Poles." I specifically checked my pole type before ordering, and it was NEITHER of these poles (I have Expedition 3 poles). So I ordered. When the tips arrived, much to my disappointment, they DID NOT FIT - they are much too large for the pole and the fall off. They are about 1/4" too large all around. The only way to keep them on is to GLUE them on - then it ruins the pole if you have to change the tip. Very disappointed. I wouldn't order these again as it is a waste not only of my money, but also my shipping. So, even if I send these back for a refund, I've paid for them twice over with the shipping both ways. I would not buy Black Diamond tips for my poles again unless it were from a store where I could try them directly onto the pole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew from Rubber Tips for My Poles I really need to use my poles to correct for my ataxia. I needed replacement tips because I lost a tip down a drain in Toronto. Needless to say, the poles without tips are dangerous for street and hotel lobby walking. They slide around. I also have Leki poles and the tips are not made of sturdy enough rubber. I think the Black Diamond tips are thicker rubber which doesn't wear through as quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cary from this product works well I use these tips on my trekking poles daily as I use them for walking with my external electrodes to keep balance. I only wish they would last longer, as I need to replace them frequently. I guess that is because I am going around a recreation center, the pool area and locker room and all. They are really great because they don't slip even in wet areas, as long as there is enough tread or roughness to the surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul from The product fit perfectly and work wonderfully. I hike both on trails and through towns on the same hikes/walks. The titanium tips are perfect for trails and provide excellent connection to the earth. When I enter a town, for both connection and noise reasons, I needed rubber tips. These are designed to fit directly over the titanium tips without removal and they are very convenient to quickly and easily install and remove. Very nice work Black Diamond!

Rated 1 out of 5 by M from Great idea. Do not stay on poles! I have purchased 2 sets of these. Especially with the second set, I was extremely careful heating them and then attaching them to the pole tips. They work great on pavement, but within 1 1/2 hours on dirt, rock, forest trail, they were gone off both poles. The idea is great but they need a fool proof method to secure these to the pole tips... Waste of money for me. Glad they were not expensive!
