These babies are the best! Technical Ice is perfect... I brought two pairs for myself and one pair for a climbing friend of which we are both in New Zealand. They bite in well, clip on excellent - the best fitting clip on (cramp-o-matic) crampons I have ever owned. Simple transition from dual to mono point. The anti-bots are SUCH an improvment over the older model anti-bots which were hard heavy plastic ones (of which it was better to use an cutdown icecrean lid). These are lightweight, strong, and flexible, and well designed! Possibly slightly heavier than other brands, but when you need to deliver the goods...it is all go!!! The strap-on over the top of the boot is also excellent preventing loss! Just buy them. They work for you!
