        Comments about Equinox Komperdell Vario Flex Tungsten Carbide Tips:

        These tips were easy for me to boil and slip onto my vintage Scott ski poles to cover up the old pointed stock tips. I did remove a little material inside the top with a drill to improve fit. Now my classic yellow poles with red grips and leather straps are once again trekking with me throughout my summer mountain adventures. Hooray!

                            The tip wore out on my old R*I/Komperdell graphite hiking staff. I ordered this part to try to replace it. I cut the old tip parallel to the shaft with a fine-tooth hacksaw blade, removing it without damaging the shaft. At first when I tried to attach the new tip with RTV, it just came off and didn't stick. At first when I tried to press fit the new tip, it just pushed back off. But later on it stuck, not clear why. Seems fine now. Was able to reuse an expensive staff that is no longer in stock.

                                  My Komperdell poles did not have this type of tip. The tip was the pole itself with a carbide nub at the end. I lost one of the nubs. To use these replacement tips, I had to knock off the basket holder by surrounding it with a wrench and then hitting with a hammer. My pole ends went right into these new tips. I pounded them on and I was good to go.

                                      A vise grip is a great tool. Also you can put the tips in boiling water to loosen the tip.
