Good on Ice, Poor Geometry for Rock

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Great middle-of-the-road tool for all kinds of ice. Nice stick with less effort than most other tools. I only found it lacking once in the realm of super steep/overhanging wild blobby jungle ice, where offset grip tools shine. However, for reasons I can't quite put a finger on, these feel terrible dry tooling. Something about the geometry seems to make the pick more likely to come off edges. It's amazing how much better other similarly purposed all-around tools (Quark, North Machine) feel on rock. For that reason, hard to recommend these for 'alpine', given how often rock is involved. But for pure ice, great tool at a good price.

Pick fell off on third time climbing

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Went out climbing my third time this season and one of my picks fell off. I was able to retrieve everything except one of the Hex Nuts. Went to the hardware store to get another one and they did not have the exact same size (seems to be a thinner 5/16 version). Anyone know where I can find the exact same one?

The nuts are metric, not imperial.

Great All Around, Better on Thin Ice

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The all mountain tool is not the most aggressive nor the lightest tool out there, but that's what makes it great. If you're looking for a do-it-all tool that holds its own on vertical ice and grabs thin ice superbly, this may be the tool for you. The handle is ergonomic but not X-Dream (see what I did there?), and thus is not at all well suited to very steep climbing or dry tooling. I don't think you can really beat the price of this setup, especially if you're getting into climbing and need an all around workhorse tool. With all this being said, nothing beats swinging a tool for yourself, so test out your options before committing. I'd recommend swapping out the abrasive grip tape above the trigger grip, as it can be tough on gloves and doesn't seem to be as grippy as it is rough.
