    Poor design

    I have purchased a pair to replace my aging Salewa guards. The material appears to be superior to the Salewa's soft rubber but unfortunately there is a related design flaw in the guard: The material is stiff so the connecting spring is prone to fatigue where it joins the inflexible adze section. Of the two guards purchased, one broke on its own after a few days on an axe (the sustained spring tension was enough to tear it apart) and the second one broke soon after that in the same spot. Later I have seen a few still in a store and they already developed cracks, again in the same spot.

    Feeble

    Used this guard a couple of times. The rubber broke apart. Replaced with the Black Diamond guards which work much better
