I am looking for a ski-touring ax... I want a bent shaft so my options are the BD venom, the corsa nano, Or a petzl sum'tec. What will preform best in the semi-technical wasatch backcountry?

These are all very aggressive tools for ski touring...But, I like the BD and Petzl because they have replaceable picks. The petzl has a cool little sliding rest that you can move on the shaft to use it on technical terrain easier, and a slightly less aggressive pick than the BD, that would be my choice.
