Topic - Ice axe choices , head ache.

Cadairmanuk - on 24 Mar 2013
Just thought I would throw this out to you guys.

I'm looking for new axes as I have lost one of mine. I had a set of flys and liked using them.

Narrowed it down to 4.

New dmm flys , wasn't that impressed felt top heavy in the shop.

Petzl quarks , okish. Handles felt really thin.

Black diamond vipers , felt good. But was last year need to revisit.

Grivel matrix tech , not tried but reviews look good.

So my idea is to go and revisit them all in the shops and see which feels the best for me. I would really be interested in what people's opinions are of the above. I'm leading 2s and 3 is my top end. Second a little harder but I can't see me ever doing anything harder .
