    High strength and durability for years of solid placements.

    Black Diamond Tubular Ice Screws are made for the climber who values life and isn't willing to mess with sub-par designs when the chips are down. In desperate situations seconds count. And when it's one screw between you and the deck, quality counts. That's why Black Diamond Tubular Ice Screws are made from 4130 aircraft-quality seamless steel tubes, pierced and cold-drawn for superior strength. The teeth are cut on a vertical mill then heat treated and plated with bright nickel. With aggressive threads for holding power and tapered tubes for ease of placement, this is a screw that cuts sharp, pitch after pitch, year after year.
    • Ideal for the ice climber on a budget who doesn't want to go with an off-brand screw

    Definitely an Ice Screw

      This is a great Ice Screw, and definitely gets the job done. They are nothing to write home about but for the price, they are a good deal. Purchased a couple for safety's mountaineering. Slowly working up to buying a full set to have my own for ice climbing. BD is an excellent brand and makes stellar products. First rate quality.

      Great beginner screw

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      If you are just getting into ice climbing and don't have the money for your own ice rack, then pick up a few of these. They are great on low angle to moderate ice and icy snow couloirs that are too hard for pickets. As you get into more vertical and technical ice definitely add screws with the knob to your rack but these are a great place to start.

      Go with the knob

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      I'm giving this three stars because it is still a well-made screw and does its job.



      HOWEVER, if you have never used these or the new hangars on the express, don't get these to save the extra money. When you're pumped and sketched out on a vertical pitch, you do not want to spend extra time cranking this thing in. If you only climb glaciers or low angle ice and want running protection, then I might recommend this. Not for vertical ice though.

      Good Screws

        I've used these and the BD express quite a bit. I like the handle on the exress a lot, but not sure if it justifies the added $20 price tag. If it's a difference between having enough screws or not, then go with these otherwise maybe try to build up using the Express so you can have the better hanger and handle to drive the screw in nice and fast.

        Old school for the win

          Used the 19s to place numerous running belays on icy sections of Bolam Glacier, Mount Shasta. They worked great. Maybe the handles would be necessary for ice climbing, but for general mountaineering the turbos are a cinch to place for an extra level of safety on that touchy icy stretch. I like 'em.

          Good

            Quality product. Vertical ice was sloppy one day and brittle hard the next but the screws worked well in both cases and I felt secure. I also had the fancy BD version with the folding knob and used both equally and with the same amount of ease/comfort.

            Excellent Skrew

              Have only used for mountaineering on a glacier, and glacier ice climbing, but I was very happy with the ease of placement. After using both these and the expresses I would really say there is no need to get them unless you need extra fancy systems to skrew your ice skrews in. Not necessary at all though

              Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screws

                This is a great screw and my favorite of different ice screws I have. It is really easy to place. The teeth are still razor sharp after two seasons of climbing on it. There are no signs of major wear. For the money it is your best bet. I prefer these over the new express screws. It only takes a few more seconds to place these.

                The king of screws

                  Black Diamond screws are the best hands down.

                  Petzl's may have all sorts of gimicks, Grivels feel a bit sharper when new, and OP screws might be a bit easier on the wallet, but for long term use, and a screw that keeps its bite year after year, these are the goods.

                  I'd like to get my husband a few new screws. What are the best lengths?

                  What size? I'll probably only be in 4...

                  What size? I'll probably only be in 4 person teams, on the temperate glaciers of the Pacific northwest. I was going to pick the 19cm just because I assume longer ensures a better "bite" but the 22cm might be overkill. I don't ever plan on doing any vertical climbing. Any advice for a newbie? Thanks!
