I picked up a pair BD Alpine Carbon Corks last year. I'm not sure that they are still making them with the flicklock mechanisms on them and have heard some negatives about bushwhacking with the newer locking mechanism (occasionally disengages when snagged on brush). But, if you can still find them with the old locks, I love them. I too use them as tent poles and they remain sturdy and strong, even after many trail miles.
There are some lighter poles out there. But, these are the best all around poles that I have ever packed with:
1. The cork handles have formed to my hands perfectly (no blisters). They have a nice flat top for down-hilling and supporting your tarp/tent and a grip below the main handles for uphilling that remove the need for on-the-fly adjustments under most trail conditions.
2. Carbon fiber, so bending/warping is not likely and, even having gotten them wedged into some rock while torquing on them (even with a 45+ lb. total pack weight for a 10-day stretch on the Ozark Trail), no cracking or other failures. They really lightened the load on that one.
3. I have never had the locks slip or fail, even though I regularly put some serious weight on them down-hilling and used them as tent poles on some very windy above treeline evenings.
4. They come with decent snow buckets that are easy to change out for snowshoeing.
5. The tips on these things seem to be indestructible. I have beaten them against rock all day, all week, for almost a full season and they barely show any wear at all yet. They are easily replaced, even if that becomes an issue in the future.
5. Quite a good looking set of poles too. ;-)
All in all, I just love these babies, so far. YMMV, but I would say they are worth considering.
