BD also improved the joint support, making the pole’s 30% stiffer.

    Packs up small, yet can still adjust height

    I'm a pole newbie, so take this review as such. My parents have used poles for years - now, in their mid 70s they happily go hiking in mountains in Austria. Enough said. In order to save my knees that now seem to get twinges on steep downward slopes, I decided to invest in a pair. I did a load of research as to whether folding (z poles) or telescopic poles were the best. I decided that I wanted the poles to pack up small, be lightweight, yet still wanted the adjustable height. My first trip was walking the Dingle way. The poles definitely helped balance the weight of a pack. I felt stupid using them on the road stretches, but they packed up easily enough. When my friend's blisters got so bad he thought about stopping, the poles saved his walk. Good job they were adjustable... and he's a big man, so they got to be pretty strong. We took one each to do the mountain section and the descent in the rain would have been really tough going without them. I found the cork comfortable to hold, although my folks showed me how you push off using your straps as opposed to clutching the handle and that helped too. Only criticism is that you need tools to change the tips. I'd like an easier method to switch to the rubber tips when needed.

    Alpine FLZ in La Palma

    Very pleased with performance during three weeks walking on very steep rugged volcanic terrain. New locking mechanism is easier to use than previous version. No risk of the collapse at crucial moments or jamming that you have with twist lock poles and nothing to catch on clothing.

    Broke first time

    There is a design weakness with this product. Where the upper tube of the folding section enters the telescopic section there is a hole in the tube. One of the pair I bought broke at this point the first time I used it. I now have a dilemma, do I risk buying another to match the remaining pole
