After having major problems with Komperdell's fixed length, folding carbon poles (the joints failed on both pair), I am very happy with these Black Diamond poles. As usual, Sierra's customer service is great as they sent me a return label for the broken poles but immediately sent the new ones. Thes... Read More

    This pole is not suited for trekking. I took it to a class II climbing trip at the Sierra and was quite frustrated by its performance. It collapsed constantly. I had to borrow one from my partner and carry the poles down. It is a disaster if using on sandy and rocky slopes...

    Great poles! My best friends hiking 100 miles of the AT in 1 week. Saved my joints. the cork handles are key for grip and comfort. If I was going to spend more I would have gotten telescoping poles, but these are a great purchase. I never put them away so it didn't matter. I'll keep using these on even relatively easy day hikes.

    Easy to use, comfy grips and super light weight!

    I was looking for a lighter trekking pole for backpacking. I have BD carbon poles with an oval cross section and they are stiff and damp quickly but are a bit too heavy. I've tried light carbon poles and they "ring" each time they strike the ground. The Cork Z pole is nearly equivalent in weight to the carbon poles but does not ring as much. The cork handle is way nicer than the foam grips of most poles.

  • “What size pole would fit a 5'5" woman?”
    Asked by Sileandal from West Virginia on 5/22/2016 8:54:04 AM
    • 110 should work for your height. My wife is 5'6" and uses the 110s.

    • Here is a good way to estimate the size you may need.

      1. Stand straight with arms at your side.
      2. Bend your elbow at a 90 degree angle.
      3. Have someone measure the distance from your palm to the floor.

      This will give you an approximate length that you could use.

    • I belive the 110

    • Sorry, but I have no idea. Maybe Black Diamond Company will answer your question: please call them at 1-800-775-5592. The poles are very light, but because of my advanced age I use them for walking only.

    • These cork handles do float, but I can't say I've tested them in deep water. They are very comfortable. I bought them for hiking and I'm very satisfied with them. I actually have the Simm's wading staff as well, which I use for fly fishing. Ironically I bought it on Sierra Trading Post as well. The Simms staff is a little more heavy duty (bigger diameter aluminum tubing, but otherwise the same). Both are very stable. I don't recall my Simm's staff having buoyant handles, but I don't have it in front of me to check. You won't get a waist pouch with these, as you do with Simms, but you do get two them for the same cost of a single Simms. I never used the Simms waist pouch since I use the staff very infrequently. I usually kept it in a backpack or the large pocket in the back of my vest. Can't beat the price of these Black Diamonds.

    • These do not float.
      Answered on 2/15/2016 10:34:25 AM by Product Specialist Greg from Sierra Trading Post
    • didn't check to see if they floated while i was using them. there is a small rope loop that holds the velcro strap on the handle. i attached a large zinger to it, so the staff stayed on the belt when not in use. float or no, i would attach it to my person every time.

  • “Is the weight for a pair of poles or 1 pole?”
    Asked by taburke6 from Ohio on 12/31/2015 11:08:05 AM
    • I just weighed the poles and they are 12 oz for the pair. They are super light. Much lighter than other poles I have used.

    • Black Diamond has a site that I used to check sizing. Here's the link:

      I'm also 5'6" and bought the 110 cm.

      Happy trekking!
