Here's what other sites are saying:
The Ergo Ice Axe/Tool from Petzl has a interchangeable Dry pick which is tapered at the tip for easy penetration, even in cold ice.The thickness of the pick makes it stronger when slotted and torqued. The hooking teeth, located on the bottom and top (for reverse positions) stabilize the ice axe.
The Petzl Ergo ice tool is Petzl's answer to hard, steep mixed terrain. A huge clearance shaft allows for easy hooking on overhanging terrain, and the shaft and handle build prevents the Petzl Ergo from skating off those tiny holds. Comes equipped with a 4 mm thick DRY pick that can handle the abuse of torques and stein pulls. CEN-T certified shaft Fully modular head that can use head weights or hammer DRY Pick included Very curved shaft allows for great clearance when on bulges and overhangs Shaft and handle design minimizes pick shift when matching hands Length: 50 cm
You get more freedom than you thought possible with Petzl's ultra-curved Ergo Ice Tool which provides you with more power as you pull your way to the next move when climbing seemingly insurmountable overhanging routes. The ergonomic handle provides an array of positioning options with less pick shift when changing hands - a dry tooling dream. Use the interchangeable ICE pick which allows easy penetration in cold ice while giving you stable hooking on ice & rock. Remove the MASSELOTTES pick weights to shave off grams when dry-tooling or switch to the HAMMER (sold separately) to place pitons.
