I have a friend that uses new matic g14 for technical ice and really likes them. As far as gracier travel they are a bit aggressive. If you use them for that keep them dual point. The antil bots ore quite good on them.

The vertical points on these crampons don't give as much purchase when being used on glaciers or steep snow. If you're looking for an all around crampon however this is a good option.

The new-matic version shouldn't climb any worse than the automatic. It just depends on the type of boot you're fitting them on. Pretty much all real "Ice Boots" have a toe and heal bail that will take an automatic crampon.
