A great light pole for use with a Whippet
I bought this in carbon so its weight would more closely match that of my expedition poles for when I want to have the Whippet as an option on a hike above timberline. I'm very satisfied with the stiffness of this pole, too.

Outstanding design
I purchased a whippet ski pole about a month ago. After many seasons of early morning spring and summer boot-ups, I decided that a Whippet provided peace of mind and helps with transitions from skins or boots to skis. The poles are relatively light and are well-balanced. I wish that the pole came with a rubber grip below the pole handle - a minor complain.

Almost Perfect
I bought my whippet in 2018, since then it has become a staple of my touring setup. To be clear I believe BD has made some updates to the product since I bought it but I think this review will still be applicable to the current model. The product is well made and the flip locker device works well and you can adjust it with a screwdriver to your preferred tightness. Collapsing the pole makes it much more handy when booting up steep terrain. On the descent I have used it several times in my up hill hand to jam into the snow when I'm puckered on a steep entrance or navigating rocks. My one dislike is how the rear of the pole sticks out a little bit from the grip, I have found that when skinning it has dug into the web of my hand. I have been able to adjust to this but I wish BD could make the rear of the pole completely flush.
