Capone wrote a review of Black Diamond Carbon Fiber Ski Poles on January 3, 2007
Zero problems with my poles. They never collapsed on any of my plants. And a few I thought for sure they would of. I would stop to check, and they were right at what I set them at. I also never had to tighten anything on them. I used them right out of the box. And if anyone has been to Tahoe you know about the long flat straight aways. These poles handled like a one- piece pole. A must buy!
