Just curious what all of you women (or men) out there prefer to use for ice tools?

I've been using Quarks, which work great for waterfall ice, but I need a second pair for alpine. The Quarks have 88mm grips, which fits my hand fine. I've been using Cobras for alpine but they're grip is just a bit too large (99mm).

Anyone have any ideas of a decent ice tool w/ a smaller grip?

Any info on the HB Black Lightning or the Grivel Top Machine?

Info appreciated.

Try the Grivel Rambo (the old style in silver shaft) or the Simond Piranha both are in small shaft (I own them both and love them both) also take a look at the new Alf-wing from Grivel
Personally I use my Rambo or the BD Rage for alpine (and yes I do have a smaller grip too)
hope it helped
