Familiarity: I've used it several times
Previously had the BD Traverse poles and these are very similar except better. Same aluminum top with the extra grip, the big difference is the carbon lower area of the pole... There is almost no bend when pushing down to stand up. These are very sturdy poles. I had previously bent my pair of BD traverse poles, the lower shaft which was made of aluminum had bent. These feel and preform so much stronger and it really gives a sense of confidence from them.... Enjoy!!
