The Black Diamond Talon is three hooks in one. This amazing hooking option is suited for big wallers and those bolting on lead. The Talon's dual-base design provides exceptional stability. Since the rock will often break under pressure of a hook before the hook pops, it's important to maximize hook-to-rock contact area. The tripod design provides optimal hook-to-rock contact. Flat, chiseled points offer exceptional bite in rock. Each blade has a different dimension, offering hook placements from bat-hook (3/16in) size to half-inch. -Vendor
