TSL Outdoors Connect Carbon 5 review
I used the TSL Outdoors Connect Carbon 5 Poles for splitboarding here in Colorado. My college Aaron Rose and I spent time comparing them to the Black Diamond Carbon Compactor poles as well. We felt that the TSL absorbed more shock than the BD carbon poles.
The adjustable component is a very helpful one. I find that 125cm is ideal for me, but it is nice to be able to adjust them and let another person use them. Aaron liked them a little shorter. The comfortable grip is nice and long, at least 3 hands long. This is nice when the angle gets steeper and allows you to choke up on the poles without needing to adjust anything.
The swivel baskets are something I had never seen before. But I appreciated them on the tour. The poles come with several sets of baskets as well. Making this an ideal 4- season setup. That can be the deciding factor for many of you out there. One set for all your activities year-round!
I am impressed with the TSL Connect Carbon 5 poles. They are light, adjustable, collapsible and perform well.
