Simple, Functional and Bomber
as i was skinning into the backcountry today i looked down at my black diamond boundary ski pole and thought.. "this is the only adjustable pole i've ever had that has never accidentally collapsed on me." so i figured i'd have to write a review on them. i love that the little lip on the grips can be used to pull up dynafit toe pieces... bending down sucks. some say you can use it for ski buckles too, but haven't tried it. the grip is comfy. the flick lock is bomber and as i said has never slipped or malfunctioned on me once. really they feel like a good sturdy pole with great swing weight.my bottom line: they aren't the lightest ski pole. they are simple, reliable and functional.
