IF you want the tool that all the other ice climbing fools will drool over then this is it. The carbon fiber is such a sick material for the shaft. It absorbs and dampens all the vibration so you dont get as pumped when you though a sucky swing and it ricochets off. The picks as slick, I dry tool the hell out of them and then just hit em up with the ol file...good as new. Lastly these are durable, show me an ice climber that is gentle on equipment and ill tell you that your dreaming. These will hold up to all the abuse that can be tossed at em. They are pricy, but worth every penny.
