Ive been beating the living piss out of my Costco carbons and they are tough as nails and perform like a porsche as far as i use them. Beat the holy living piss out of them. Awesome

At the time, it was very frequently. I thought to check it's prostate and found the problem. Now very little and infrequent...



...wait what are talking about??
HAHAHA - Used my BD carbon distance FLZ often, never been too easy on them and they have outlasted several pairs of Comperdell and Leki - the regular carbon distance are probably even stronger, though that's due to them not being adjustable.

The cams can fail on adjustable length ones. I now have a simple REI carbon fiber 3-sectioned one that has a cable that runs thru the middle of it, and I love that it breaks down to a size that easily fits in the long side pockets on my EMR II right along-side the Kwik Stix and BTR Stool, and that's just one side. Tripod goes in the other. And Daddy is not light be anyone's definition these days, and I only take 1 with me and it does just fine.
