Matt Awrote a review of Black Diamond Expedition 3 Ski Pole on January 15, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Even though these are designed primarily for skiing, I find these are a better hiking/approach pole. These are solid and strong but a little heavy. The grips do get a bit slick when snow gets on them. But I really like the secondary grip below the top handle when the terrain does get steep and you need to choke up on a shorter pole length. The flicklock adjustment is solid as always and overall a good pole.
