/ Ice Axe advice
Not sure where you have read that. I hope I have no issues this season with mine.
According to this guy who seems to be a well versed voice on ice gear petzl doubled the strength of the pommel grip rest on the latest version. I would have thought that would have fixed the issues they had.
It may be the silly little scalloped 'spike' curly steve is referring to. An odd 'fixing' of something that was never broken and at the time appeared as a red herring to the real problem.
Personally i just switched to fusions and have found them a much nicer tool for the things i do.
Brilliant, keep up the work

If you are going to quote an article to back up your argument atleast read it.
"The new improved 2012-2013 tools just became available again recently in Europe and now here in the US and North America. Already I am getting reports in of loose pommels"
"A few failures reported both loose inserts and inserts coming out early this winter so it is already obvious the "fix" isn't good enough."
This isnt the only thing ive read saying the same thing either.
