Topic - Climbing Technology axes?

AlanLittle - on 18 Nov 2013
I'm looking for an axe for general alpine use, with my main interest being overcoming inconvenient bits of snow & ice that block my way to or from rock routes.

I had been looking at the Grivel Airtech Evolution as a nice but expensive option, technical enugh to not immediately have to replace if if I do decide to start doing the odd AD-ish mixed route.

Then I noticed that one of my local shops has the Climbing Technology Alpine Tour, which looks pretty much like a clone of the Grivel - similarly T-rated - at less than half the price.

Any experience with this axe? My only previous knowledge of Climbing Technology's gear is through my mate belaying me with a Click Up, which seems to work given that I'm not dead.
