Not backward compatible with Air Tech Evo
Please be aware that this slider is not compatible with pre-2009 models of Grivel Air Tech Evo ice axe (models with friction strips on the shaft, prior to the rubber handle) because it is not possible to get the pommel past the rivet at the bottom of the shaft.
Seems fine otherwise.
will the slider fit the Petzl Sum tec ice axe?

$64,000 Question; Does anyone know if these "leashes" can be used with a pair of Axes from another manufacturer? Like perhaps a pair of BD Venoms???

Anyone use self fusing tape on the shaft of your tool with this? I want to know if there will be enough space to slide nicely on mt matrix light tools

How does the new slider compare with the older one?
If I recall correctly the old pommel can be taken apart and clamped on the shaft with a screw while the new one is one piece. I am guessing that the old one would work on both older and newer ice axe models while the new one is not. (See my review.)
The old one did not have a substantial eye for attaching a leash but had a small loop to keep it close to the axe head.
