    Poles done differently.

    Poles tend to be poles, but Black Crows Furtis Ski Pole is trying to be a little better. Instead of aluminum, it's made from composite, which is just as strong but a little bit lighter, so your wrists and forearms won't get tired after hours of poling or touring. The Furtis also has a long EVA foam grip, which makes adjusting your grip easy for smoother sidehilling, and comes with Squadron powder baskets so you can cruise through blower without sinking in. Best of all, the wrist strap is easily removable, so you can pop it off and lock it down to your pack without worrying about the straps getting hung up.

    Get used to it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Super light ski pole that looks awesome and is really comfortable to use once you get used to the long handgrip. One issue I had was the articulated basket on one of the poles kept coming off. I have since had the poles replaced (Backcountry was awesome about getting me a new set) so we'll see if the new pair hold up.

    fine until the baskets fall off

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The other reviews are accurate: these are light, strong, nice to tour with. Only flaw in day to day use is that at speed you will notice the extra drag from the large diameter. What's the catch? Loose a basket and you can bin them: the baskets are a special type, Blackcrow don't sell spares (clearly from a company with a traditional French attitude to customer service), and you can't replace them with a normal basket.
    A shame.

    Very Light

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    First impression was how cool they looked and just how light they were. Very light. Great for touring with the long grip. This is my first non-adjustable pole for touring as I found I rarely changed the length. I think Black Crows found a great combo of super light and strong/durable poles. The black did look scuffed immediately but it's only cosmetic. That doesn't bother me but it may some folks. For me personally, I did find it took a couple days to get used to skiing with them. The straight grip was new to me and is it possible they were too light? Just "felt" different than my old BD Razors that I've used for years. Overall a great pole!

    Best poles for ski mountaineering

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Black Crows was born in the French Alps. These poles come from that steep skiing pedigree. Adjustables are completely over-rated and are a liability in the mountains. I've seen too many fail or break. The Furtis is the strongest pole I've ever had my hands on. You could rappel on a single one in a deadman configuration. The updated composite version is about 60 grams lighter each for the 125cm length. The long grips are awesome and the straight grip plunges nicely for transitions, hand rails on steeps or snow testing.
