Default Trekking Poles tips



Advertise Here

Hi,

I got Black Diamond FLZ Trekking Poles, and they come with two types of tips:
- Non-scarring rubber Tech Tips
-*Carbine Tech Tips
They are interchangeable.

On which surfaces should I use the Carbine tips, and on which the Rubber tips?

I use the poles also for my setting up my tent, and in that case I use the Rubber Tips (to avoid damage to the tent).

Thanks a lot for your help

Carbide on soft ground, rubber on rocky ground and asfalt (the rubber helps stop your tips from just slipping between rocks, and protect the underground from constantly being chipped away on busy trails)

Carbide for most tents/tarps, because you want the tips in the ground. Adds extra stability.
