Are you an elaborately manufactured profile lying in wait, under a bridge of course, ready to pounce, troll style?

Nah, he's an enthusiastic 13 year old.

You'll see why I called that axe "legend" if you try it out. It's defiantly a better experience that the grivel air evolution axe (trust me ;)

What makes you say that?

Have you used both in the hills or just held them?

Lads. The DMM Cirque is electric turquoise and anthracite, it doesn't matter how it fairs in the field, when I hold it I look cool as f*ck. I often take it out when I am running and everybody gasps and steps out of my way because they know how f*cking cool I am. It makes me run faster and climb mountains better. I sleep with it under my pillow. DMM Cirque is life. DMM Cirque is love.

That doesn't answer the question.

Have you used the cirque and the airtech on the hill?

It doesn't matter whether he's used it, what matters is how cool he looks while holding it. Please read the above.

The cirque has very little benefit over the grivel evo tech however if you are in to Alpine Climbing it has one major disadvantage it is quite a bit heavier. I also don't think it's as comfortable to use as a walking axe as the pick top is very thin whilst the grivel evo tech the shaft ends at the top of the blade making a much more comfortable handle.

I don't see the utility in owning two cirques, personally I'd flog one and get a tech axe to pair it with (and later get another tech axe)

Of course I used the cirques. I think it's down to personal preference. You may prefer grivel axes etc... But I don't. I like the cirque because it's simple , tough ,comfortable for me and has a nice weight to it. But most importantly it's made in the UK. You may think "what an idiot, he doesn't use grivel's" but at the end of the day it's down to personal preference. My dad has always climbed routes with long,straight -shafted tools, as I said "it's down to personal preference". When the first accent of the North face of the Eiger was made it was climbed with straight shafted axes.
And when I went to buy my cirque's I tried many axes such as , BD Venom, Grivel Air Tech,and also some Stubai model. I walked out with the cirques. For more technical routes I use my DMM raptors with the more technical DMM Fly pick.

Who decides for you first thing in the morning then?

In reply to funnybunnytom1:
Just to clarify I couldn't give a toss which brand of axe you use, I was merely curious as to whether you had used BOTH out on the hill or decided on one in the shop and stuck with that. Going from your reply I'm going to make a guess that you've not used the Airtech, which doesn't make a difference I was interested in if you had a reason for not liking it.
However you seemed to have latched on to the idea that I don't like dmm for some reason.

What has the first ascent of the Eiger's nf got to do with it?

I'm not arguing with you and I know your next post is gonna be "you didn't answer this" and "WTF has that got to do with it " . Quite frankly CBA to argue with people. It's dead clever arguing with a 13 eh ?
