Available in 45 and 50 cm lengths, these tools make great basic workhorses. The double crank in the shaft is not overly radical but provides plenty of reach over bulges and protects the knuckles well. Picks are sturdy and available in B and T ratings, and will satisfy any mid-grade ice and mixed climber's needs, and hammer and adze options fill out the package. Additional head weights are also available for dry tooling. In use they feel light and positive on the swing, with clean placements easy to achieve and really solid hooking. Although these tools may not excel in any one area, they present a tough and versatile option which feels solid and reassuring in any environment.

Really good basic tool. Have used it on everything from VI mixed to WI5 in Norway. It manges pretty well. Can get them really cheap here in the UK, thou they are rare and picks and things are hard to get since HB went belly up.
