Topic - Petzl Dartwin or Simond Vampire crampon, opinions/experiences?

frqnt - on 23 Apr 2012
Iím buying crampons for a trip to Chamonix to climb various North face routes and I will be spending a month this winter pushing my grade on cascade ice and mixed routes.

Is a beginner going to notice much, if any, difference between the Dartwin, which I have climbed on, and the Vampire?
Has anyone climbed on both?
After how many days could I expect the Dartwin front section/Vampire points to require replacing?
Can anybody advise if/how well the Vampire Speed fit Nepal EVOís?

It is worth noting that I'm too eager to wait for the Lynx in September.
