I've owned a regular Corsa aluminum axe for several years and have used it as a just-in-case item while ski touring. This one bites much better and is still feather-light. I nervously chose the 50cm shortest length. So far I don't regret the short length at all since it lives on my pack more often than in my hand (I have whippets for everything but the occassional shrund or longish patch of really hard rime). Thumbs-up.
