Budget friendly tool
I haven’t had a chance to use these on ice yet, however my initial review is that these will be great for an all mountain set. I’ve been using a set of quark axes and wanted to try something new without breaking the bank. These are solid and feel well balanced and comfortable. Also I love the bright green color. I got these on a deal and couldn’t be happier. Can’t wait to get them on the ice!!

An all-mountain steal
I picked these up on a great deal and have been very satisfied with their performance. I've climbed on them side by side with the Cassin X-All Mountains and BD Vipers, and the Bandits felt pretty comparable. Some of the small details on the competing tools were a little nicer, like slightly more comfortable grips, but I didn't notice much of a difference once I actually got on the ice. The Bandits probably wouldn't be my first choice for sustained vertical ice or difficult mixed climbing, but for someone climbing mostly lower-angle ice, these are a perfectly capable set of tools. I haven't had the chance to take them out in a true alpine setting yet, but they seem to be better suited to getting you through a wide variety of conditions like you might find on a long climb rather than highly technical hard ice routes. On a final note, yes, they really are that lime green color, if that matters to you. On the plus side, no one is going to mistakenly grab your tools at the end of the day.
