DMM have brought out the new Fly design with a lower rest in place and an optional upper rest. Anybody seen these bits for sale, I'm sure I am not alone in wondering if they are compatible with old Flys.

In reply to steveshaking: My mate emailed DMM asking about compatibility, unfortunately they are not compatible.

In reply to gump: Which BD one? There is this chart http://www.needlesports.com/Catalogue/Winter-Climbing-Equipment/Ice-Axes/Ice-Axe-Accessories which doesn't reckon on BD compatibility. Which worked for you, got a picture?

In reply to steveshaking: I have just fitted my old flys with petzl trig rests for lower hand rest as recommended by a few people on here. They fit perfectly after cutting away a small amount of the rubber handle. Im really pleased with them and saves spending on the new model!

In reply to steveshaking: Old-style Petzl Trigrest for at the bottom of the axe, black Grivel trigger for the upper rest: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=127421

In reply to Martin W: Looks good, but I think thats actually an old style Griprest which aren't available any more, the newer Trigrest may have to be used but I don't think it will be as neat an option as your axe looks.
