Questions & Reviews

Ben (downright abused product)
I have several thousand miles on the Black Diamond Carbon Z poles, and I am on my third pair over the course of 6 years. The two pairs that broke failed in the same way, the aluminum sleeve that attaches the carbon segments becomes unglued from the carbon pole. I have heard that you can reglue the sleeve back in place but I chose to go the warranty route. My current pair has held up for over three years, perhaps they have improved the glue. Still, I give only 4 stars because even if you can reglue the aluminum sleeve back in place, it is annoying to run or hike back to the car carrying a broken pole.
