Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the urban explorer These were bought as an add-on to a set of black diamond poles for treks into town. I bought 4sets because I was expecting some tiny, cheap protectors that would fall off after a couple of walks. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that I was greatly mistaken. These tips are about an inch high, about 3/4 inch in diameter, and fit my poles like a glove. It took me a couple of minutes to get the things off after I put them on. I cannot yet speak to the longevity if the tips, but they seem to be very well made. They have yet to lose their grip on the blacktop or concrete, and performed just as well on grass and packed stone trails.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So close to perfect, but critically flawed. The surface of the tip is great. It's quiet on the trail and has good grip. Unfortunately, unlike the other two pole tip options, both of which are much worse for general use, this tip does not screw on. You just stick the pole tip into it and hope it stays on. It doesn't. I have so far lost two. This would not be a big deal if I didn't hate polluting. But, I have now left one of these somewhere between rocks in the Himalayas and another in the mud in Costa Rica. I will try Krazy Gluing the tip on this time and hope it sticks. But, please Black Diamond, make a new version of this tip that screws on like the other tips you make do. This is a show-stoppingly bad design for an otherwise near perfect tip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best accessory next to the poles themselves. I bought these tips to help protect the tips on my MSR trekking poles. They fit & work great on hardpack trails, rocks & even crossing streams. I used these tips on a 45-mile pack trip in Wyoming in July/August 2014, then promply "lost" (left) the poles somewhere at the trailhead. Ordered new poles AND another set of these tips. Note: The tips fit & stayed secured to my MSR poles better than they did on my buddy's Black Diamond poles. His came off three times in the mud, and he ultimately lost both tips before the end of our trip. I lost both poles tips, so he came out "ahead".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed-not as advertised This product's information states, "Works on all BD trekking poles except the First Strike and Distance Series Z-Poles." I specifically checked my pole type before ordering, and it was NEITHER of these poles (I have Expedition 3 poles). So I ordered. When the tips arrived, much to my disappointment, they DID NOT FIT - they are much too large for the pole and the fall off. They are about 1/4" too large all around. The only way to keep them on is to GLUE them on - then it ruins the pole if you have to change the tip. Very disappointed. I wouldn't order these again as it is a waste not only of my money, but also my shipping. So, even if I send these back for a refund, I've paid for them twice over with the shipping both ways. I would not buy Black Diamond tips for my poles again unless it were from a store where I could try them directly onto the pole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and sturdy. Add miles of Tech Tip pole tip usage Nice & snug when added on tech tip pole tips. Lightweight and I hardly know they are there. I had to add a single wrapping of duct tape around my pole tip to really make them secure when using as an add-on to my tech tip pole tips but otherwise works fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Protects floors; might satisfy TSA? These BD tips (3.5cm long) seem to fit snugly on Leki poles, and Leki rubber tips (4.5cm) also fit BD poles (Trail, Compact, Ergo Cork). 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 section guide. Fits both BD and Leki.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice BUT... these tips will NOT fit Black Diamond Expedition Flicklock poles, diameter too big!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product works well I use these tips on my trekking poles daily as I use them for walking with my external electrodes to keep balance. I only wish they would last longer, as I need to replace them frequently. I guess that is because I am going around a recreation center, the pool area and locker room and all. They are really great because they don't slip even in wet areas, as long as there is enough tread or roughness to the surface.
