The Komperdell trekking poles use these baskets. No other brand will fit these poles. These are perfect. I had to order these as one of the originals that came with the poles got lost on a hike. That is the only drawback to these...they fall off sometimes. I took some shoe goo and glued the new basket (also the other old basket)on so that this should not happen again.

great poles for the money. I have used these in TN, AK, and CO, lots of different terains. be careful about overtightening if you don't have a tool to get them loose to adjust. Cork grips are fantastic and straps are easy to adjust

Design problem: Komperdell's Bayonet-style fastening system is vulnerable to loss of the basket if twisted the wrong way when caught between rocks. I've lost several (in fact, the reason for this purchase). I'm going to try and do some sort of safety cord that enables me to retain the basket when it comes off.
