New design works even better. Fully adjustable modular construction allows for a tool that works great in alpine, ice falls, snow.
The 3mm tapered pick head seems to always find its place in the ice with often the first strike. Grips can be removed to plunge the snow better, if so desired. (550g) Has good clearance on steep ice to save you knuckles.
Best ice tool I have ever used.
