Black Diamond continues to set the bar… This is my second set of Black Diamond trekking poles, and these are just as good as my “old“ poles. The shock absorbing system on these poles are a surprisingly nice feature. It is also nice that they come with the snow basket, but for the price I am surprised they do not come with the rubber tips. As I have gotten older (50+), I rely more and more on my trekking poles. I frequently (weekly) carry a pack for distances of 5-10 miles, and am looking forward… Full review
In a nod to John's review, excellent for the price. I bought these a couple years ago and I'm fairly happy with these. They are light enough and I love the spring-loaded feature. Once in a while I find I need to adjust the poles again if I've been going down hills repeatedly. The twist lock mechanism has slipped like that only occasionally and usually not on the same hike, so I check them after a few hikes. The grips are fine for most seasons, but I'm not thrilled with them in warm weather with… Full review
First time user of trekking poles. Found these to be easy to operate and fit the bill. Easily adjusted, locking seems secure. Good traction on slippery rock. Easy to use. Full review
For a first time buy of trekking poles I think I bought right. I've seen people of all ages using them and just wasn't moved to consider them for myself until now. Being a first time buyer of trekking poles I have nothing to compare them to, save for the copious reviews online, so I researched and chose these. The grip fits my hand comfortably and to test the locks and pole strength I extended them longer than what I'd be using and raised myself off the ground with all my weight on one. It didn't… Full review
Same problem as mentioned by previous writer; poles would not tighten...just kept turning by hand with no result. Dick's, where I bough them, couldn't help. Referred me to Koppen but no response from them. I give up, will buy another brand. Dennis Zink Webster, NY (585) 746-9465 Full review
Sturdy with adjustment for every condition and individual. Bought new after using a couple other brands. These are lightweight and fully adjustable. Padded wristbands. Enjoyed using them first time out. Also like the ergonomic hand grip, although I did not think I would. Recommend this product for the avid hiker or the beginner. Money well spent. Full review
Trekking poles are a great addition to your hiking gear. Leki Thermolite Aergon Antishock poles strike the balance between reasonable price and high quality. Until a few years ago, I thought trekking poles were a fad that would soon pass. That was before I bought a pair. Now, I would never backpack with them. One of my first tasks on a multiday hike used to be to find a nice walking stick among the branches that had fallen beside the trail. Sometimes I found a keeper, though not always. Even when… Full review
My favourite walking stick on trails or on streets! It can be gripped on the foam grip like a nordic walking pole, or the wooden knob can be held in my palm. I like the anti-shock spring. The length can be adjusted quickly. It's also a camera monopod. This walking stick was bought by my spouse as a gift in 2007 and I've used it for ten years. The adjustable length is the best feature! I keep changing it from "the middle" for walking on city streets, "longer" when on hiking trails, and "shorter"… Full review
All around great product—five stars. These poles are great. Easy to adjust. Great shock absorbers. Great support. Carbon interchangeable tips. Best on the market. Full review
