Combining our innovative folding Z-Pole technology with winter functionality, the updated Black Diamond Compactor is a four-season aluminum pole that folds into an ultra-compact package for easy storage. The redesigned FlickLock Pro is now lighter, stronger and easier to use, with a more durable, forged aluminum construction, and offers up to 20 cm of adjustability. The Compactor's speed cone deployment, which allows it to deploy in a matter of seconds, has been upgraded with improved connections for durability. Its small size when folded makes it ideal for splitboarding, snowshoeing and airline travel to distant winter destinations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great poles for splitboarding Awesome size for splitboarding and easy to use, lightweight and hold up well in all conditions. The button for releasing tension can be a little tough to push all the way in with cold hands but I have always been able to do it. The only thing that is missing is a grip under the normal grip. This is pretty standard for touring poles as it is very helpful when side slipping up a hill; the cold aluminum isn't great to hold onto while doing this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall fairly descent poles use: backcountry touring. Splitboard. Right out of the box: slight defect - one of my poles does not clip in with a normal amount of force. There’s these pins/clips that allow the pole to not collapse in on themselves and one of the poles gives me quite a fight every time I pull them out for touring mode. Other than that, big fan over here. I’ve only had them for a few months but they’ve held up for touring trips in Jackson, Steamboat and my local hill at Berthoud Pass. Defective pin/clip aside, I’d still recommend these poles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so great I have only used them a couple'a times so far, so my initial impressions: right out of the box they compact impressively small and sturdy. Tugging on the separate sections, the cable is strong. It almost seemed like an insert incorrectly pulled out, but that actually turns out to be an intentional tension adjustment -- so read the directions, because these things are packed with features you might not recognize if you don't read up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awesome in theory, disappointment in practice. These poles are the bees knees...until you use them a few more times. I just broke my third pair of these poles in two years, never once from a fall or extreme loading. With every pair I’ve had, the “shims” at the joints push themselves up inside the pole, rendering them useless. I’ve also experienced hairline cracks on two of the pairs, just like the review above. BD has always replaced them, but I’d take a pass on these guys until the bugs are worked out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits in backpack I don't like to ski with poles that much, but sometimes I need them. These fit nicely in my backpack, are lightweight and assemble easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weak insertion points I love the design of this product, are used them for split board touring. Unfortunately the wall thickness of the aluminum at the joints is so thin that regular use causes fatigue. The attached photo is the joint after about 12 uses. This did not result from uneven loading or a fall, I believe this could be a good product if they remedy the situation
