They're not the lightest poles on the market (though they're extremely light), but if you need trekking poles, and you want them to be collapsible, these are the ones to get.
According to Black Diamond, they had a supply chain issue, and the Carbon Cork trekking poles with "Flick Lock Pro" locking mechanisms were shipped in limited quantities only to REI. Other sellers like Amazon and Black Diamond themselves stocked a version with inferior plastic flick locks which according to Amazon reviews were plagued with issues. I'm so glad I waited - the metal flick locks on this model are superior.
Do yourself a favor and don't go with twist lock poles - the locking mechanism just doesn't work as well and they'll slip on you. A readjustment every once in awhile to get them back to the height you want them might seem OK, but at the end of the day you're trusting these things to support your weight. To me, it's worth spending the extra coin for flick locks, and these poles are the best on the market.
This pair of poles weighs 1lb 2.6oz on my kitchen scale, which is a small weight price to pay if you're somebody who needs (due to bad knees) or likes (due to them making you feel more like a four-legged animal on the trail) trekking poles. Worth the buy.
While hiking five different trails in four Florida State Forests this past weekend, I slightly lost my balance on the side of a hill and caught myself with my trekking pole. I was pleasantly surprised with how sturdy the pole felt, how much more sure my plant was, and my recovery, versus the previous anti-shock pole. I absolutely LOVE these trekking poles!
