Re: [EDIT/APPROVED] Owner Review - Black Diamond Carbon Fiber FlickLock Poles [Jonathan]
- Hey Jonathan. I've been gone to California, and just got back to my
e-mail today. The link I gave you:
is where I think the review should go. There are already other owner
reviews on these poles, and yours should go in with them. UNLESS... the
Carbon Fiber aspect of your poles is different... but I believe they are
the same ones.
In the future please respond to things like this on the main list as
somebody there will know that I am gone and be able to help you.
Please let me know if you have further issues with this, or if I am
interpreting this incorrectly.

Thanks again James for your careful edits.
I now have the revised file ready to go . . . but, when I go to that
url, I don't see a spot ready for my file. This worked fine for my
two previous reviews, so unless my abilities have regressed since
then (always a possibility) seems like something is missing.
