/ replacement picks for quark
Basically can they be retro-fitted?
But they still have stock of cascade picks for old quarks.
I know the old style don't fit the new... :(
Consequently I have a spare set of dry old style quark picks, I should probably sell em.
cheers all. Just looking at selling my old quarks but I'd be shortchanging someone if you couldn't get new picks for them anymore.
The new picks do fit but. If you want to use your hammer or adze your going to have to have some engineering know how. Failing that just use washers to space out the back end or do what the French did and cut off the surplus material at the back of the head. Looks odd and balance takes a little bit to adjust to but I've seen a few people over there with them before the nomic came out.
I was hoping for maybe £180 complete with clipper leashes and new (ish) picks?? I going going to see if anyone local wants them first but i'll let you know otherwise.
Brand new, one is opened and has a bit of the black finish rubbed off from trying to fit it to a new quark. They're the quad 4mm ones.
Would require international postage though...No idea what that's worth.
The old style picks are still available to purchase. The product codes are as follows;
Cascade (b rated)-68367
Quad (T rated)-U91000
We are also trying to secure a small stock of these products for the future.
The new picks for the new Quark are not compatible with the old Quark. The new picks will move in the head of the old tool when loaded and can cause irreparable damage to the axe head. Petzl do not authorise the use of new style picks in old style Quarks.
