Description: Black Diamond Aluminum Whippet Ski Poles

Built for steep ski or splitboard terrain that requires extra traction, the Whippet is now improved with a removable steel pick. Using our innovative ClickLock Dial, you can attach the pick to add a margin of safety for icy bootpacks and no-fall descents, and then remove it for shredding low-angle powder in the backcountry. With its three-section packability, the Whippet is stowable, making it ideal for splitboarding excursions, while its redesigned FlickLock Pro adjustability is now lighter, stronger and easier to use, with a more durable, forged aluminum construction.

Excellent design, with one suggestion
The 3-segment design makes it more likely that I'll use this ski pole in summer as well as in winter. The removable pick is also a great feature. My only suggestion for improvement is to change the Flick Lock adjustment from a hex screw to something that we can operate using a tool commonly carried in the field, such as a screwdriver.

Good weight, balance, and functionality
I've used these 4 days now. I bought them because I loved the safety and convenience of a whippet ski pole when touring, but I found my arm that held the whippet pole getting noticeably tired by the extra weight. I find the weight and balance of these poles comparable to my other backcountry touring poles with the whippet attachment off. With the whippet on, I get the extra security I wanted. Attaching and removing the whippet is pretty easy.

suggestions: the covers for the whippet socket take a bit to remove. add a larger tab or slot so the point of the whippet can be used to remove the cover.

Easy to use
I got the Whippet earlier this season and it has been a great tool in variable terrain. Easy to use and seems sturdy. A bot on the heavier side but it's to be expected since it's not the carbon version.
