User Review: Black Diamond Raven Pro
Price Paid: $99
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.
