tips don't get stuck in dirt and logs

I use these rubber pole tips three seasons, then off for ice and snow. The steel tips will be worn through after 50+ miles of rocks and pavement. sometimes must slit with a knife to get off after a years use. Some say these tips came off on them, yet for me after a good pounding hike mine get stuck on tight. I clean all possible oil off the pole tip with alcohol prep. I'm somewhat crippled with three joints replaced so far and I've used this same brand tip for 10 years.
