Review 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: strum, 2005-12-30

These tools are great. I've used them for about 3 seasons now, I have the bent shaft, which allow for some clearance, and still plunge in snowpack well. I wouldn't use them for hard WI, just like I wouldn't use leashless tools for glacier travel.

I also have a tendency to break things, and have yet to be bale to break these tools, or the picks.

they also sink amazingly well considering the lightness of the tool, great tool for the weak (me) and ultralight crazy

Fine tool. Not high end. Use 'em and you're gonna bash your knuckles some.

Fine tool, worked great in RMNP. I've got the bent shaft version, and that makes then a little harder to feel secure on a boot-axe belay, but beyond that I've really liked them.

Great tool. Got some of the X-15s (older version), and they are durable as all hell, awesome for some alpine action, and make a good third tool, easy to clip onto harness.

Used them, didn't like them, wouldn't suggest buying them.
