For the ice climber who has everything...

My climbing partner bought this about a year ago. On very flat ice (like glacier ice) it works 100% of the time. However, on irregular waterfall ice it has a tendency to miss. I would not recommend this product considering the cost and weight. Make a V-threader out of a wire coat hanger and save your money.

Use retired windshield viper of the XL size. They have two stainless steel springs running along each side of the blade that are easy to remove and shape to make a hook. It also re-use of the waste otherwise disposed.
