/ Alpine Tour Pro Ice Axe - any good?
A mate of mine got one as his first axe. I'd make the same comment about it as I would my CT crampons; not exactly refined, but will do the job perfectly well. I prefer my BD Raven but I'm probably just being a tart.
Thanks all. it was a toss up between the Cirque, and the Tour. Decided to go for the standard Alpine Tour, as it's on sale for £40 including delivery.
Cheers, sounds like it'll do me just fine for the easy stuff.
