/ Petzl's new ice screws
im at a show in a few weeks where they will be. not that excited tho as the current versions i find nothing special.
its not the winding handle thats the problem - for me they are hard to make stick.
never know tho, theyve produced game-changers before.
Sure. Will say what i can. Just showroom stuff tho, not sure i will get a chance to try them out for real.
The teeth are designed so that you don't loose length when you do sharpen them. the Laser Ice has an alloy hanger which reduces weight compared to the old Laser, about 135g and about £39. The Laser Speed is very similar but with a handle, similar weight, about 140g and about £48.00 The Laser Speed Light is the clever one as its aluminium tube with steel teeth, 100g and about £54.00. As you can see I managed to get hold of a catalogue!
Looks like they've gone the E-climb route of using aluminium tubes and steel teeth for their speed light range.
I take it the Petzl teeth can't be replaced like the E-climb ones?
