Thanks for your feedback, Melville! I'm glad you were able to find replacement parts for your broken pole. We understand where you're coming from and did want to clarify that 100% Carbon Fiber is specific to the pole material and construction, not the flip lock & bolt. Since a lot of horizontal tension is typically placed on those parts they tend to be stronger being plastic & metal.
That being said, I've never thought about making those pieces from carbon fiber...but we will look into it!
We'll also look into our math (we're hikers, not mathematicians) because I want to make sure the replacement parts are a no-brainer! We don't want you purchasing a new set when you can easily and affordable replace a piece.
