Titan Pick-I bought one to replace my Lazer pick. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between these two picks? I placed them side by side and can see no difference other than the Titan has a squared off point on the top of the end?? The metal seems to have the same thickness.
The Titan pick is a T-rated pick while the Laser pick is B-rated (T=technical, B=basic). The angle on the picks are the same though the Titan is a heavier and thicker metal which keeps the pick from dulling or snapping as easily on mixed terrain. I prefer the Laser pick for thin/brittle ice as it displaces less per swing, but on mixed terrain and for alpine use, where a broken pick is more critical, I choose the Titan.

I know that it says the Titan pick works on all BD tools... Just to be certain, does the Titan pick fit the Venom? It doesn't look it does.
kevin,this WILL NOT work on your tool, this is for technical ice tools whereas yours is a normal ice axe. the correct pick for your axe is either the:
the BD venom tech pick: http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-venom-tech-pick
or the BD venom classic pick http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-venom-classic-pick
either of these picks will work for your tool. personal preference, plus theyre the same price so good luck choosing!
These picks are the way to go. They just work perfectly. I think these are a huge upgrade from the laser picks in every respect, they stick great, and hold an edge very well and are tough.

Would these picks be swapable with the picks on a set of older carbon fiber black prophets? Thanks.
Yes! You can verify it in the ice tool instruction manual on the Black Diamond web site. Picks, hammers and adzes are interchangable among all the two-screw heads.
