Big and Heavy

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Red Dog from Norden, CA on Friday, March 11, 2011
I tested these large powder baskets during an avalanche class with six other participants, none of whom had such large baskets on their poles. We were touring in fresh, but heavy, powder all three days I tested these. My observation is that the extra diameter was not worth the extra weight. Putting these heavy baskets on Komperdell carbon fiber poles created an extraordinary swing weight in an otherwise very light pole.
