/ Petzl Vasak Vs Grivel G12
having used both i can say: What is your color preference? yellow or orange? i found them both very good crampons!
wouldn't take the g14's... for pure ice the BD cyborgs or stingers whatever are waaaay better then g14/ . g22 should be good as well..
I went to the shops thinking I was going to buy vasaks but came out with G12's because they fitted my boots better. My brother went in at the same time and came out with the vasaks because they fitted his boots better. Both very happy with them.
I would recommend going to a climbing shop and have them fitted properly to your boots if you can
I second what Lewisor05 said - whichever fits best. I went to buy G12s and came away with Vasaks as they allow more precise adjustment and suited my boots better (I have Sportiva Nepal Evo GTX). I think the Vasaks are great and am very happy with my decision.
