/ BD Viper axes
I had a pair of fusion with titan picks, and a friend had vipers with laser picks, in the space of a winter season i lost a few mm of pick whereas he had to file off about an inch of pick to keep them sharp.
You should be fine with the Laser's, but your best bet's to get some T picks for bashing up in Scotland, and keep the Laser's nice for pure ice routes.
The lasers are appreciably shorter from sharpening, despite the previous owner stating he'd used the titans more.
Thanks for the feedback ~ any suggestions for where I can get T-picks if I decide to?
T- rated picks are a must (IMHO)as you'll trash your laser picks pretty quickly in the UK, especially if you are mixed climbing (pretty much unavoidable south of Scotland).
Hope that helps,
