Awesome Tool-better than Vipers
These tools rock. They are so light and the pick angle is great. The first time you swing these you will notice how much lighter they are.
Also they look awesome in the carbon Fiber.
The pick has proven durable as I have pounded early season ice-or sometimes rock. The bend in the shaft is great and atleast for me allows you to pivot your hand in a couple of different positions.
Whenever i go climbing with someone that hasnt used these tools-they are super stoked and love them.
They are carbon fiber-so they can get marred and scratched.
I wish there was a bigger hole for more options when attaching alpine leashes at the bottom.
overall-for me these are the best pure water ice tool and as grivels best kept secret.
