Rather than a typical centered monopoint, the Snaggletooth crampon uses an offset monopoint along with a smaller horizontal frontpoint. This configuration aligns the monopoint with the big toe for power and poise, while the secondary tooth provides additional stability.

Good precision and grip, but slightly heavy.
I bought them for mixed climbing routes with a lot of rock climbing involved and they proved very adequate for the task indeed. I used them with a pair of La Sportiva Baturas and they performed very well with great feeling and precision.
However there was this incident on the downclimb when one of the crampons suddenly came off without particular reason. I had them fitted really hard, so I don't know what happened but since then I am a bit cautious.
By the way, the above text was first published on the Black Diamond's homepage, but even though the crampons were given 5/5 stars, the text was moderated and removed. So the reviews there are filtered.
