Most ergonomic ice axe I could find. Much more comfortable than the Petzl Icewalker in my hands. Not sure if the weight difference between the PRO version and the regular Raven is that significant. The ice axe handles well for self arrests and does not seem to suffer in mixed terrains on rocks.
Overall the most comfortable ice axe I could find and gets the job done when it counts.
Price Paid: $99
I have only had it for one season. I have only practiced with it and it does work for a self arrest. I was a little worried about the pick being shorter. Carrying it feels natural. It is super light and that is what I was going for.
