Best Gen. Crampons?

9:35 p.m. on November 7, 2001 (EST)

Looking to buy my first set of crampons. I've used Grivel G-10's (rented), but wonder what anyone here thinks. Just need a set for some glacier walking, basic mountaineering, maybe a little front pointing. Have a pair of LaSportiva Karakorams, Montrail Mazamas, and hopefully soon have a pair of Lowa Civettas. Looking for the most versatile crampon, but it has to be BIG - I've got size 14&15 boots.
