These things are solid and perform great on waterfall ice routes, as expected for fully rigid crampons.
The only reason I can't give it five stars is because of the amount of work it takes to switch from dual to mono point (lots of little bits and pieces), and that it didn't come with antibot plates which should be required for all vertical rail crampons, in my opinion.
They fit my rockered sole Scarpa boots perfectly.

Free Shipping. Trango Harpoon Crampon (Fall 2006) The Harpoon by Trango is a high performance rigid frame waterfall crampon built on the time tested vertical rail design, but that doesn't even begin to describe the Harpoon's performance or versatility. Use it in the dual-point configuration and you'll find it's a stable, precise and sure-footed crampon, capable of getting you up any icefall in the world. The forged points have a 'T' profile so they resist shearing through soft ice and they're completely vibration free. Install the optional Mono-Point Conversion Kit and the Harpoon becomes a foot weapon, lethal to the hardest, steepest and thinnest mixed climbs on the planet. That's because the asymmetrical design of the mono-point puts the power where you can control it...right under your big toe. Imagine that... a crampon designed to work with your foot! The geometry of these is such that by splaying your feet out naturally, both the mono-point and the inside secondary point engage the ice (or whatever) giving you the stable platform of a dual point. Turn your heel out a bit, however, and you have all the precision and versatility of a mono-point. The Harpoon comes complete with dual points and urethane ankle straps.
