User Review: Omega Pacific Mountain Axe
Price Paid: $50
Very sturdy ice axe. I bought the 80CM one to use as a cane in moderate to steep climbing. I sharpened the spike and pick with a file, that's the only modification I made. I may put some friction tape on the handle, I have done that on my other axes, and it helps.
I have a Black Diamond ice axe and this one compares favorably. I am very happy with my purchase.
