Is the Demon a replacement for the 4CU or a new range to go between that and the Dragon? They obviously feel they need to offer people a direct competitor to the Friend.
Also, with the fairly aggressive shape of the Apex there now seems to be a gap between that and the Fly for an "all-rounder" tool? A gap that perhaps the Rebel previously filled?
Like the look of the axes a lot though!
One could hope at least
Surely the Cirque hammer is a bit pointless?
No the cirque hammer is not pointless, actually a very good idea, for the obvious reasons your not aware off.
And the Swedish judge gives a score of 2/10 for this trolling attempt.
With a bit of work with a file the cirque is actually not that bad for climbing ice. A friend of mine climbed idwal stream with a dual cirque set up last year and was quite happy with them. Given the weight of the raptor it makes sense to me at least.
About time DMM got a grip of their winter gear. They do look very Petzl, but I'll eat my ice screws if they're as good.
But on the bright side we will finally see an end to the old Fly loving plunge fanatics.
yeah yeah ice tools and cams...
im into the little terrier thing. a sweet little ice hook that finally fills a gap between bulldogs/spectres and a beak. nice one.
I should hope it is pointless! I would be incredibly difficult to hammer anything if it had a point on it.
Fair enough. In my experience it just didn't feel nice on ice, but then again I'm no fan of the (current) Fly either. I don't understand why someone would choose a pair of cirques over say the Matrix lite.
