Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These were my first pair of trekking poles and loved the support that they offered, definitely hooked. The only problem I had was with the durability of the wrist straps. I used these on a 14 day, 140 mile Haute Route trek across Switzerland and by the time the trip was over I had pretty much thrashed the straps. I wish black diamond had used a descent piece of webbing instead of this flimsy mesh stuff.
