I would love to add one of those to my rack! However I need to spend some more time plugging pro, before I start banging away at pitons. Maybe with next year's REI dividend. Besides, I'd rather spend the $10.00 dollars on a new nut, than $100.00 on a hammer.

Hammers aren't just for pins ya know. They are just as usefull for cleaning rock, cleaning gear, and bolting as they are for reseating pins and hammering pins.

The only real reasons for betting a heavy hammer like the BD YOS is if you are planning on getting on a LOT of nail up aid routes, or planning on doing extensive hand drilling.

I would consider something along the lines of the Camp Brenta, or the Petzl hammer for most applications, and are far more affordable than the BD.

(Note that I do love the BD YOS hammer and would love to have one, but it really is overkill for most stuff).
