The Rage has a new look for Fall 2002. And while these tools may look fancy, they’re still all about performance climbing on vertical ice and difficult alpine routes. With a modular 17-4 investment cast steel head and a lightweight 7075 extruded shaft—you’ll like the Rage’s combo of durability and functionality. A high-clearance shaft clears cauliflowered ice, hooks over protrusions and steep overhangs like nobody’s business. These tools also happen to be equipped with the Cobra Pick—so you’re gettin’ every state-of-the-art feature you could ask for...without a heinous price tag.

-High-clearance shaft clears bulges and reduces shaft “bounce back”
-Textured grip is easy to hold on to and helps fight forearm fatigue
-Good for vertical ice OR difficult alpine routes

Review 5 out of 5 stars

As everyone else has said, bomb proof!! Very simple yet very effective. These axes are great for either pure vertical ice or mixed scotish turf and crack bashing, just change the pick on the hill if you need. Don't need spanners just use the other axe. Why don't other companies take heed and get rid of all the allan keys! Maybe a little heavier than some other axes but the only thing that would out last these are the old classic mountain technology forged axes.

At first I was a little worried about the weight of these tools, but after having climbed with them for 3 years, I don't mind the weight because they are bullet proof. These tools will hold up to anything you can dish out. I like that teh shift is a consistent diameter, which lends itself to choking up on the shaft much easier than some tools that narrow as you approach the head. I've used them for vertical ice as well as mixed. I've dragged them up 14ers and a couple of 20,000' peaks. i would never trade them in. The Cobra Picks are also great, but I suggest filing down teh first tooth.

I love my Rages! Interchangable parts, easy to replace picks and reasonable price. You can't go wrong with these tools.

I'm a big fan of the Rages for many of reason people have listed above. Interchangable parts, great value, and versitility. The pinky rest can be both a curse and a feature, sometimes I appreciate it to improve grip on the tools and othertimes I curse it for not allowing me to grab the tool as low as I'd like. It's a heavier tool, but again, this can be both a good thing and a bad thing, depending on the route and your style of ice climbing. A solid buy regardless of skill level.
