/ CAMP ice screws and axes - any feedback?
Looking at splashing the cash and getting some new screws seeing as the ones I have are, frankly, a pile of crap. May also stretch to new axes....
Just wondering if anyone has used the CAMP Radions (or the Streams for that matter) and have any feedback on either model, good or bad?
What about the CAMP X-Dream, X-All mountain and X-Alp axes? Anyone got/used/tried out these axes and any feedback on them? (especially the X-Allmountain, seems most likely as the model I would be looking at.)
Reason I ask about CAMP stuff specifically is I think I can get them at a discounted price, and I've used their general climbing kit (nuts, "Friends", hexes, krabs etc) for years and always got on well with them - yeah, they're not the best in the world, but they do the job well and they're generally cheaper than the other big names..
Any info appreciated!!!
i use the CAMP x-alp axes and love them, only climb low grade to mod, i still have a pair of DMM Flys but prefer the CAMP's in all honesty.
Don't suppose you've used/been able to find the replacement handles in the UK to convert to leashless for the X-Alps?
no sorry i use leashes and haven't needed new picks yet, only been using them this season, but like i said i really like them.
