This is not a cutting edge ice tools but they are extremely good for allot of very different conditions. I use them for water ice, Mixed routes in the Alps, Patagonia and in Himalaya. I bring them on everything I get on. I have never tried them on modern bolted dry tooling routes and I'm sure you can find better tools for that, but if you only want to buy one set of tools I would recommend the Matrix.

The aluminum version are good for more brutal handling. The only improvement is the rubber grip up at the top of the axe that is not lasting that long.

After starting to climb alpine routes in winter with the Power Cam's this season there is no turning back. The convincing factor for me was the weight. Its just so nice to have a lighter rack on the approach but more important less weight on the harness. Using the power cam's increase the safety margin for me as I'm less reluctant to take a few doubles, some thing I rarely did when I was using heavier cams.

The price is also attractive along with easy handling with gloves, some thing I was not so sure of before taking them out an using them in winter.
