Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

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.

Here's what other sites are saying:

Petzl gave the Quark Ice Tool a complete overhaul to make it one of the most versatile choices for taking on steep ice and alpine terrain. While the Quark has been a staple in the ice game for years, things can always be better. Petzl added a redesigned pick that can be used with a head weight for better penetration in bulletproof Alaskan blue or without a weight when you want to shave grams. This tool can still be used with a leash, but Petzl designed it with leashless use in mind and added an adjustable trigger for increased swing precision and an upper grip to let you match on steep ice. The new spike design easily accepts a tether, so you don't risk dropping your tool from 4,000 feet up some alpine wall. The Quark can be used with a hammer, adze, or no attachment at all. Either way, it's still much lighter than the previous version.
