We used our G3 Carbon BC poles last weekend, and they performed very well. We loved how strong they felt, and indeed, they were very stiff and did not flex like aluminum poles when leveraged. They felt very light to swing, and climbing with them was better than anticipated, with the little orange stop where we normally put duct tape as a stop. The locking mechanism was easy to use, even with our mittens/gloves. We enjoyed the "hook" on the top of the ski pole for changing our climbing bar levels. The grip was very positive, and the strap fit well and adjusted easily. A big step up from our very good Black Diamond aluminum BC poles, which went to our daughters. Plus we got them super fast from the folks at Cripple Creek. Awesome all around.
