A do-it-all four-season pole.
Black Diamond's Expedition 3 Ski Pole is designed to do it all, from skiing to hiking to backcountry sword fighting. It's made of tough aluminum and has dual FlickLock adjustability, giving it a useable range of up to 78cm so you can hit the snow or the trails with confidence. It comes complete with small-diameter trekking baskets and 100mm powder baskets, an extended foam grip for easy use on switchbacks and steep terrain, and an aggressive hook on the handle for flipping A/T binding risers and boot buckles.

BD Adjustable Poles - Greatest Sticks
I've been using Black Diamond adjustable poles for all my adventures in the mountains. From hiking, mountaineering and backcountry skiing, they've never let me down. The locks work flawlessly and baskets never pull fall off if properly mounted. I've hammered and banged the pair I currently have on the scree and rocks while scrambling and have yet to make a dent or bend in them. My only problem has been friends don't want to return them after loaning them out, so I now have a couple pairs on hand, one for me and one that I'll most likely end up giving out on the next adventure. Can't wait to give the BD 3 a try later this year and will post a review soon. Meanwhile grab up a pair and enjoy a lifetime of backcountry.
I like the idea of making this a more...
I like the idea of making this a more 4-season oriented pole, but does anyone know why BD didn't the use the lower profile flintlock pro like the previous expedition?
Can't say for certain. From my experience with the last 3 generations of BD poles, the last was probably the most difficult to use with gloves on. Granted it was much strong than the previous all plastic. Perhaps due to negative feedback. I do really like the new ones. Too soon to tell just yet but the lock seems like it will preform great.
