Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeffrey from Back to the drawing board 1. I like the concept of changing tips to suit the terrain. It didn't work for me because somewhere in 900 miles of hiking, the tip unscrewed itself and fell out. I didn't know that happened and I just kept stabbing the plastic stump into the trail. 2. The basket is only 1½ inch away from the end of the pole. Very frequently a root or an embedded rock just in front of where I planted the pole would catch the basket, jerking me back if I used the wrist strap. Black diamond, if you are reading this, please move the basket away from the tip. 3. The cutout in the basket eventually wears out and stops clipping to the top section of the trekking pole Other than that I love black diamond.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynne from Incomplete Instructions The instructions tell you to turn the basket counterclockwise to remove it. What they don't tell you is that you have to stick the baskets in boiling water for at least 30 seconds to remove the baskets before putting on the replacement baskets. I had to turn to YouTube to figure out how to remove and replace the baskets. Otherwise, the baskets, like the poles, are great.
