Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit Tips were tested on "non-REI logo" Komperdell poles. Fit is excellent. They mount securely without any shifting or movement during use. The inside diameter of the channel that accepts the tip of the pole decreases at its terminus, corresponding to the diameter and shape of the carbide tip of the pole. The transition to the narrower section is strengthened my a metal washer. The symmetrically round shape to the head provides for a secure footing regardless of what angle the pole is to the surface. I have used these tips on pavement (only when necessary), gravel, and hard-packed and loose soil with positive results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superior walking tip it's a walking tip so not much to say. The new model does not match the picture but it seems to have a superior design with deeper groves and better rubber. It has a metal washer to help prevent the carbide from poking through. It sticks on well and is bit expensive but I think it's worth it. It's not as agressive a design as their Nordic walking tip and not as expensive so I would say it is a good choice for all around summer hiking where the carbide is not needed and can actually mark up the trail excessively. Kind of the same reason steel studs were outlawed on tires in the summer. Respect the trail and don't scar up the rocks and wood!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for what I purchased them for I read an article somewhere that the popularity of trekking poles was beginning to take its toll on trails. Trekking poles without the rubber bottoms that is. The sharp ends were digging into the soil and scarring rocks. So I did my part to try and help minimize the damage by purchasing these. They pope right onto my Leki corklites no problem and stayed on through 15+ miles of rugged terrain. I noticed they did slip a bit more going up hill on loose gravelly soil, but after I noticed this I was just a little more careful about where I placed the tips and everything was fine. No slippage on open rock slabs either. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent alternative Most of my trail hiking is Sierra granite. Carbide tips are noisy, slip on rocks, and generally not very satisfactory. These tips have metal inserts to prevent the carbide pole tips from punching through, and are made from a very durable hard rubber material. Now I use them all the time, even on dirt trails. I haven't used them for a full season yet, but so far they show almost no wear. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Protects floors; ..might satisfy TSA? These Leki rubber tips (4.5cm) also fit BD Trail/Compact/ErgoCork poles, and the BD Walking tips (3.5cm long) seem to fit snugly on my Leki AERGON T2442 poles. However, BD tips cost 45% less. I've yet to use them on a trail (hence tentative 4 stars), but they certainly eliminate the carbide tip 'clatter' on neighborhood streets. And since I find that poles are useful aids during indoors winter stretching/balance exercises, the rubber tips prevent 'unthinking' damage to hardwood floors! As solid tip covers, I'm also hoping they may allow poles (sections) to be transported within carry-on luggage through airport TSA screening. To simply protect pole tips or section ends from wearing holes in luggage or backpack fabric, or scratching something or someone, there's no need to buy special 'tip protectors'. Instead, buy 30 cents of ½" diameter clear vinyl tubing; cut 2" pieces to slip over carbide tip and/or plastic inner guide. Fits both BD and Leki.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well on my new Leki Poles Purchased these because the salesman in REI told me that the standard tip (looks like a small 5mm diameter piece of steel protruding out the end of the pole bottom) will quickly wear away or degrade if walking on rock. So I don't know if he was correct or trying to increase the sale price but $Fourteen dollars was cheap insurance on the $one hundred thirty nine dollar poles. So I promptly went out and hiked 45 miles with these tips on my poles. They worked just fine and I am glad that I took the extra insurance. So go ahead and buy the tips with your new poles!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wore out in a few days! Nice idea, good design... However, shoddy in the extreme. They wore out in under ten miles of walking on harder surfaces, precisely the type of uses they were intended for. Worse, the metal tips of the poles penetrated the things in just a few miles, it's just that it took another handful of miles for the things to become totally worthless...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked, until I lost one These tips worked great for me on my recent trip to Philmont where I was carrying a 50# pack after food and water. The tips made it 5 days awesomely. But halfway through the sixth day I realized that one of the tips had come off. At that point the standard tips still worked for me, but it would have been nice for the tips to have been designed to hold onto the poles in a manner other than simply friction.

Have you fixed the wear-out issue of the previous reviewers? I am heading to philmont and need these for 12 days of hiking.

Asked by: Philmont Don
​The tips have not received any recent updates in design. Although there are two reports that the tips wore out prematurely, we have not heard any overwhelming feedback to suggest that this is an issue.

Do these fit on other brands of trekking poles as well? I have Black Diamond poles and I'm considering getting some REI poles for the extra length. I'd like to have the option of rubber tips.

Asked by: arvana
No they do not. They only fit on Leki brand poles.
