Not as sturdy as I'd hoped!
Had a pair of these for a year. Was fairly happy with them but then I snapped one of them using it to stabilise myself to prevent falling after hitting a bump while skinning along a track. It was at 140 cm extension, while this probably doesn't help the strength they are supposedly designed for it.
Warranty is only 1 year (it was 13 months old), sourcing a replacement section for a reasonable price in the UK isn't easy (it appears they are readily available and cheap direct from BD in the US only) and BD were less than helpful.
I guess poles do fail sometimes and the flicklock system is much better then turning ones. However, if you were buying these thinking the high price and weight meant they were more robust you might want to reconsider.
