These poles are fantastic. They are very light yet completely sturdy. The locking mechanism is what sets these poles apart from their competitors, however, as there is absolutely no 'give' or 'slip' so you can place all of your wait over them without fear of them collapsing. I have used these for great relief after incurring a knee injury while out walking and I was able to confidently descend using them.
They were dispatched very quickly and were very well packaged, so well, in fact that after 10 minutes I had to resort to using a knife to open them. All in all, a more than satisfactory purchase!

Excellent poles!

I read the review of these on Outdoor Gear Lab (group winner) and Banana Fingers had the best price and their service is always good as well.

They arrived within a few days, and they were soon being used to help me climb Snowdon via the South ridge.

What a difference a good pair of plies make.i bought these a few months ago, before the winter and yesterday was the first time I'd used them on a strenuous walk.i loved the fact that they were so light. They supported me through river crossings, rubble and peat bogs (we live on Skye). I hate carrying things when I am walking, but I hardly knew I had them.i have some problems with balance following an ankle injury and the poles gave me confidence when crossing streams and rivers. I can definitely recommend them.
Very impressed with the helpfulness and speed of delivery from Banana Fingers too.

These poles are extremely lightweight, but sturdy to use. The cork handles are extremely comfortable, and after hours of walking, you still don’t feel them. These are definitely the best poles I’ve ever used.

BananaFinger have an excellent service and the poles will delivered the next day. Highly recommend the poles and the supplier.

Got my Black Diamond Alpine Carbon poles very quick
Best price I could find on the internet
Poles have won test reviews and i can see why
Used them for a week in the Alps and couldn't be more pleased
Light, really quick and easy to adjust and so strong that they really give me confidence in the slippery limestone conditions
100% happy, hopefully the last (and best) poles I'll ever need
