    Detailed description

    The new Distance Carbon FLZ poles from Black Diamond are a tougher and more durable version.

    When weight is essential for long-distance hikes and days in the mountains, the Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ is a very versatile and lightweight pole. It features a 100% carbon construction, a FlickLock Pro adjustment system and Z-Pole three-section folding cable technology. It also features interchangeable, non-scarring Tech tips and a lightweight EVA foam grip to improve your grasp and traction.

    The Black Diamond FLZ poles feature an exclusive rapid deployment system that uses a simple push-button to unfold and collapse the pole. The push-button is linked to a cable on the inside and a rapid deployment cone within each segment to provide resistance, stability and a deployment  speed that has never before been achieved in a collapsible trekking pole.

    Suitable for almost anything, from little one-day excursions to two-day backpacking hikes, the Distance Carbon FLZ with its 20 cm adjustment margin allows you to set the pole at the desired length, which is particularly useful for passing along slopes or doubling as a tarpaulin peg.

    Distance Carbon Z is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 93.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from used and abused as a wading staff I bought a pair soon after they came out, and still going strong. I use them as wading staffs, have fished with them around the world in salt and river. On the river they get quite a bashing (I applied PVC tape around the bottom 10 inches to protect the epoxy surface). I've had them wedged between rocks, fallen on them, and many times they have prevented me from a swim. The pole I use most is onlynow starting to rust in the locking pin - not bad after 5 years of salt and river misuse, never drying them out. WD40 fixes it though. The pole fit nicely in a simms neoprene staff holder on your belt. Simms now make a carbon equivalent, released several years after the Z poles came out.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compact but flimsy and breaks My husband and I are avid Trail Runners logging around 30 to 40 miles per week. We recently ran a section of the Appalachian Trail near Annapolis Rocks. My Z poles were great for most of our run, but by the and I noticed they were getting loose and seemed extra flexible. When I got home I noticed one of the polls had a crack in the carbon. I am disappointed in my purchase of such an expensive piece of gear that doesn’t seem to last.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light but not strong Had one of these snap on a trail run. I’ve had several pairs of poles in the past. While these are by far the lightest, they also seem to be the most fragile. They simply aren’t reliable.
