so the inner links are made of stainless steel. it seems to me that steel would not grip the rock as well as aluminum, as it is a harder metal... anyone experience this, or notice that when retracted to the steel links they tend to walk or slip a little more than the aluminum counterparts?

i own the venom and got a chance to climb a short pitch (100ft) of W3/W3+ with it. it felt just fine and got the job done with no problems. unfortunately i have not had the chance to play with the cosmitech. however a few observations are: the venom has a touch more curve in the shaft. The pick on the petzl has much more recurve in the pick which is great for ice climbing however from what i understand is less suitable for self-arrest. Also the venom is available with a hammer which is a nice option for pounding pins. hope this helps
