Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I finally caved and bought these after years of wasting time burying various items or using axes/poles for snow anchors. They're pretty bomber and it is nice to not worry about macgyvering tie-outs. They could be a bit lighter (dyneema maybe?), but to their credit have repeatedly stood up to being aggressively chopped out with an ice tool.
