Comments about Black Diamond Trail Back Poles (pair):

The price is right and they are sturdy in general but the tips are only jammed on and can be pulled off fairly easily such as when caught between rocks in a stream.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is it aluminium or carbon?
RAGHAVENDRA K  The carbon are about 30 grams lighter. I have the aluminum poles and my hiking buddy has carbon polls. Although 30 grams doesn't sound much, you can feel the difference. In terms of stability and usability, they are same. So, if you are a "ultralight" backpacker and can afford the additional cost, carbons are the way to go. I am happy with aluminum polls, just sayin' :-)
