Summary

Bought these in 2008 for under $100. Been using them to climb ice in the Catskills ever since. For a new-intermediate climber on a budget I don't think they can be beat!

Pros

  • Dependable

Cons

  • Heavy
  • Need bot plates

I used Trango Harpoon (mono) for years and had only one significant complaint--the toe bail broke twice. I eventually switched to the Trango Hyper and love them. Strong toe bails, great ergonomic design and easy to change mono point. I use these for ice and mixed and find good performance for both. I rate these as very reliable and fun to use.
