    I bought 2, for a trip with my son to "Isle Royale." Covered 50 plus miles and these came in handy. It kept us upright so many times, vs a face plant if we did not have these poles. We carried 45 pounds pack, and I is a must have. I was off trail for about 5 miles, these may have saved my life when i used it as a brace when I was going when going over a downed tree. I jammed one between these two large branch since my center of gravity...I did not have one. The poles took a lot of stress, I swear i saw these things bend. It was only after I got back that I found them as good as new. They did not give at anytime, and the cork help if your hands sweat alot.

      Comments about Black Diamond Ergo Cork Poles:

      I use these for hiking with a lot of altitude gain. These are very comfortable poles and whereas I usually take off the straps these are very comfortable.

      I love the positive snap locks and the angled grip should be standard on all poles.

        This was my first time using hiking poles and what a difference it makes. We had a backcountry trip into the Sawtooths and on the way up the trail we ran into a forest ranger with the same poles- can't get a better recommendation than that!

          Use these sticks on hikes all over Arizona. durable and light. easy to pack when not in use. They help take the pounding off of the joints and increases stability on uneven and down-hill trails. Some more Color options for women would be nice.

              Comments about Black Diamond Ergo Cork Poles:

              Im 36 and am 6 months removed from achilles tendon rupture repair surgery. Back on the trails and I decided it was time to get a pair of trecking poles to lesson the wear n tear on my legs. I trust Black Diamond having had experience with many of their products in past. Thies poles are no different. High quality. Easy adjustments. Light. Strong. (Im 6 foot 245) They never slipped or lost leingth settings. Grips/handle is at good angle and the cork is great!
              It realy helps disperse the weight and lesson impact, especially on incline and declines. IMO it feels like a 25% relief of leg load.
              I will be going to Glacier National park in 4 months and am glad to be having thies poles with me.
