I used these in kandersteg last weekend along with BD turbo express and I feel these are better. The BD's bite into the ice quicker but, these have an overall easier placing. Much easier to use with gloves and one handed, also how the head is angled away from the ice. Your second doesn't have to worry about dropping them because they can stay clip in. As a bonus they come with petzl ice flute for storage and racking. Definitely buy these over any other ice screw.

I was ice climbing in Kandersteg, Switzerland last weekend. While belaying my second up the pitch in the Reverso mode, a huge block of ice fell from above and landed on my left shoulder, breaking my scapula, clavicle, some ribs and collapsed my left lung. I was belaying him off the V-thread i was anchored to so i was able to continue to easily belay him safely with my still functioning right arm despite my injuries. After reaching me at the top of the pitch I was able to be lowered and then taken to medical facilities at Interlaken. Had I used another device or not belayed off the anchor, I would not have been able to continue belaying my second safely, and he may not have reached me and lower me. Bottom line: The reverso 3 is a safe and easy device to use even in emergency situations resulting in a quicker rescue time.

This is a great shelter. I love how light and compact it is, and that is stows away easily. my only two complaints are that it needs factory taped seams instead of seam grip. Also the trekking poles in the middle get in the way when your getting busy in the woods with you partner. I would recommend bringing some guy-line with you for tying the tent up to a tree or something, then you can get rid of the annoying poles in you and your partners way.
