Repairing broken trekking poles. on 03/28/2012 09:07:05 MDT Print View

Great review Ray! I'd be interested to hear if you are able to easily get a replacement section for your broken pole, and how easy the repair is. I do a lot of off-trail bushwhacking and have broken my fair share of poles. After taking a fall like you describe, you pretty much have to expect a broken pole. However the nice thing about the BD poles is that you can buy all the replacement sections (and baskets) easily from their website. Once I figured that out I was able to repair 3 old sets, and now I'm less concerned if I do need to sacrifice a pole to prevent/arrest a fall.

Great Review! Seems like they might be the perfect poles to turn into packraft paddles?

Hi Mark,

Sorry to take so long to answer this. I destroyed my ankle and have really been out of it.

Yes they did send me a replacement section. I plan to be beating them up again next winter. (Fingers crossed;-)
