Topic - Vipers - "Scottish Mixed"

CurlyStevo - on 10 Dec 2012
Hi,
I'm considering getting Vipers and I'm toying with getting the "Scottish Mixed" version.

http://www.needlesports.com/Catalogue/Winter-Climbing-Equipment/Ice-Axes/LeashlessLeashed-Axes/Viper...

Does anyone have an opinion if the larger adze and hammer are really a plus for Scottish climbing?

- How hard is the normal hammer and adze to use?
- Is the scottish adze better for jamming in cracks (does anyone actually do this I've tried with my quarks but got no where!)
- Does the Scottish version unbalance the axes? I notice it makes them 50 grams heavier per axe.

Thanks,
Stevo
