Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poles Bought these for y son. He loves them. Better than the G-3’s that broke after a month.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sturdy+durable, could use more attention to detail Heavy, but sturdy and durable. It would be great to have tip protectors that fit, to make them more usable for non-snow conditions and/or non-snow approaches. Would be better if rubber grip extension reached all the way up to grip. Instead there is the exposed metal of the pole, which is slick to use and cold if needed to place hands there. Grip is kind of large and clunky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should be fine! These poles have not been used yet, but I have another set (with two adjust points) that works fine and is of good quality. Here's a hint: the baskets were very hard to screw on. I suggest putting them in boiling water for 10 seconds or so and immediately install them. Worked like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bomber poles Been using these since they came out early 2000s. Have many of these mixed and matched with different tops and bottoms from different years. Able to mix and match. Got the 155s this time for long tours etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trekking poles!!:) I bought 10 pair of these trekking poles... they get used multiple times a day. They are holding up like a champ. Gives great support for playing in the powder even when you lean on them quite heavily. Super stoked with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pole but tricky getting the basket on Overall happy with the pole, it feels heavier than expected but looks durable. Had some problems getting the basket on the first time, screwing it on like it says in the manual doesn't work, you have to but the basket into boiling water and then push it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Poles for resort and touring Had these for 4 years, been great for touring and resort. Bent the lower shaft in a small crash, but easy to replace as the part is available on BD website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Workhorse Got these for touring near SLC. I've used them quite a bit, straps are solid, poles aren't noticeable on the way up with the weight, and i have put them to work on the way down. I've hit them with the edge of the skis a few times and other than the expected paint chips, poles are in great condition.
