Brian Campbellwrote a review of Black Diamond Traverse Ski Poles on January 26, 2012
Let me start out by saying......I "was" a diehard Scott man...my Punisher poles were my go to poles the past few years............but as my education and knowledge of back and sidecountry terrain continues to grow, I have seen the importance of having a quality adjusting pole like the kind that BD makes and is known for. The Traverse pole has super funcionality, nice swing weight, powder baskets, bomber flint lock system, and a great extra lower grip for skinning or traversing. Have I said yet, that these poles were an excellent purchase. This is my first pair of BD poles, but it will not be my last........great product.
