timwrote a review of Black Diamond Trail Back Trekking Pole on September 19, 2009
great light weight poles. I use them only on down hills and tricky bush-wacks. Love the fast flick locks and light weight. Actually I bent one on the first trip I used them. Tripped and fell head first into a bush with snowshoes on. Tried to role with it but ended up putting a lot of weight perpendicular to pole. It bent slightly and had a hard time collapsing. For only 12 bucks BD sent a new middle section for the pole! What company would do that? The color of the new section is different, but it makes for a good story.
