Dane Bwrote a review of Black Diamond Traverse Ski Pole on January 2, 2013
Nice light weight semi affordable pole. I did get the snow saw that is supposed to attach, the only issue is when you attach it to the saw it doesn't lock in place so I'm not sure how i'm going to use it if it doesn't actually lock?
The flick lock is pretty cool but i will say this, I was skiing trees and the lock hit a bush and opened. Then next pole plant I was missing half my pole! EEK! I slammed on the brakes and went back for it... not cool though. What if I was in a "no-fall" zone? ya know? Anyway, other than that it seems cool. I've only skied it a handful of times. If my feelings change I'll update this.
