Customer Reviews of Black Diamond Powder Basket
Not had chance to use these baskets yet but they are substantial and large enough diameter to give good support in powder. They were easy to fit to my Vokl Phantastick carbon poles.
Used with Black Diamond 3 piece poles in deep and fresh powder.
Pros: Easy to fix on, robust, large enough size to be effective under load.
Cheap, good value baskets I bought on a punt to fit my leki walking poles.
On piste, I gave them a hammering for a few days, and they remained undamaged despite rotating on the edges on the hard snow.
Off piste, they worked well in powder, and I think i will keep them on my walking poles because they also float better over Scottish bogs!
The only issue that I had is my ski brake got trapped into one of the circular holes around the basket perimeter - I may cut the small plastic links to prevent it happening again. Having said that, it's probably one of those couldn't do it again if i tried to problems!
