Good for hooking bad for swinging

These triggers came on my Taa-k-oons. It adds to my hang time and delays the pump by distributing the pressure between index finger (trigger) and pinky (horn). The problem is it changes the swing so the tool pivots on your index finger instead of the pinky. It is no big problem on a hacked up climb where you are mostly hooking, but on fresh ice the funky swing over stresses my index fingers. Also the trigger gets in the way when I flip the tool around to hammer pins. I don’t use the triggers any more.
