I'm not familiar with TTT but I'm guessing it's not third tier toilet.
Does that mean that they are gone because I can't find them.Jun 20, 2013 at 3:15 pm #1998485
I need to buy two and the price is unbelievable but I can't find it. I tried the search function under gear and Black Diamond doesn't show up.
How long until the deal expires? I'm heading home so I can try to make the purchase off of my computer.
Edit: Called my wife at home and she saved the day. Just ordered two with five minutes to spare. I owe you a beverage of your choice!Jun 20, 2013 at 3:24 pm #1998490
When I went to their website, instead of the deal du jour, it was taking me to another page. Fortunately my wife was able to pick up two. Thanks again!Jun 20, 2013 at 9:28 pm #1998599

These poles are listed as an upcoming deal and should be available within the hour..Jun 20, 2013 at 10:29 pm #1998609
Concern. It says "Pole" not "Poles."
Hopefully I didn't screw this up earlier.
One picture is of a pair so I'm going to take it at a typo.
EDIT well those sold quick!
EDIT EDIT Steep and Cheap just responded and they were sold as a pair.Jun 21, 2013 at 9:31 am #1998679
Not as good of a deal, but SunnySports has them for $84.95.Jun 21, 2013 at 11:36 am #1998707
What is the appeal to these? They are kind of heavy for trekking poles at 1lb a pair.
There are at least a dozen poles I can think of that would be lighter, with the same features, for around the same ticket price.Jun 21, 2013 at 11:45 am #1998709
Like which poles?8oz a piece,carbon fiber,flick lock,minimum length 25",long grips and cost can be had for $65-$85?Jun 21, 2013 at 11:46 am #1998710
I'm a large mammal and the carbon corks are bomber. I came down on my last pair pretty hard after tripping over a rock and they took the abuse without flinching and saved me from redecorating my face.
Seems I'm reading trip reports on a monthly basis where an LT4 is broken. Probably a very high percentage of BPLers are using them so that would account for the frequency as well.
Unfortunately I either left my last pair at the trailhead or they were stolen out of my truck.
To each their own.
EDIT Yes the LT4S spec out 5.3 oz (each) lighter than the BD Carbon Corks but I'm quite content with them and not looking for a replacement…. other than replacing the ones I lost.Jun 21, 2013 at 12:06 pm #1998714

he has tested a lot of stuff and gives these his highest marks (he takes lt3's on fast and light trips). thats good enough for me.Jun 21, 2013 at 12:29 pm #1998722

For as often as I have heard of LT4s snapping, there is no way I would buy them. I don't have the $$$ to replace a major item of gear every season, and poles are the same as shoes or pants to me, i.e. things that get scraped and wet and dirty and that I'm not going to baby. I have the BD Trails (aluminum/foam version of the carbon/corks). At 18 oz/pair they're not featherweight but they are a four season pole and the only pair I expect to need for a long time.Jun 26, 2013 at 12:50 pm #2000006
BD carbon corks should be up in the next 30 minutes on Steep and Cheap for $65 againJun 26, 2013 at 1:23 pm #2000010
They're up now.
