Good screw, but takes too long to place when you're pumping out.

Good Screw, used to be the back bone of my rack until the coffee grinders came out. Have the old style and the new style and although the teeth have been bottomed on rock a couple of times the teeth file fairly well. Keep them lubricated after each use with some lite oil, I have had problems with the nickel plating coming off.

A good screw that will last a long time and still be sharp. The long sizes are good for belays when time isn't a problem. But if you can, then do yourself the favor of buying the Express model with the small handle for faster placements at the crux.
