Alpine Carbon Z Trekking Poles is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight & Compact Fantastic weight, cork hand grips and straps. Really enjoy the versatility of using both the rock and the ice tips as well as the different baskets that can be deployed based on the terrain or activity. The weight and size of the poles is fantastic when you're covering long distances or need to fly to your destination. I learned the hard way, however, that these poles are NOT meant for skiing (back-country or in-bounds). After 5-6 months of heavy use, one of the two metal connection pieces gave out (slid into the shaft) after being weighted and the pole required a screwdriver and some epoxy to fix. I was extremely disappointed when this happened but they appear to be manufactured well enough that the repairs should hold up nicely. When I contacted Black Diamond's Warranty Team to resolve the issue, they did so very quickly and professionally. The team kindly informed me that the intended use of the poles did not really include skiing. They provided instructions for fixing the broken pole and even sent me a brand new pair of their back-country specific ski poles to make it right. If you're looking for a very lightweight and company hiking pole made by a great company, look no further!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Features don't work properly Poles seem sturdy enough, although I have only used them for a few miles. But, the straps are supposed to be removeable, but they are not and the hardware is different than in the instructions. I suspect that what was sent to me was used, the steel tips were installed and there were small scratches. But the return policy is very restrictive. Finally, just like the headlamp I got from Black Diamond, too many gimmicks that don't work or don't work smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, rapid deploy, reliable. I owned the Alpine Carbon Cork up until buying these and was satisfied knowing that I had nicer poles than everyone around me, no matter where I went. My philosophy is to do my research, and pick up the nicest product available, trusting that quality to last for as long as I do. With that in mind I was hesitant to buy another set, but these have one key feature which the flicklock poles do not. The Z pole design means they are quicker to deploy, AND pack up shorter to take up less space strapped to my pack. I use them for ground SAR where I find that the most important aspect of a pole is that you actually brought it with you! So often I would leave my Alpine Carbon Cork in the car because I dont think I'll need them today. The size, and overall ballerness of these poles (the Alpine Carbon Z) make them ideal for SAR and tracking, snowhoeing and hiking. Pick up a pair and take them with you, every time.
