/ fitting petzl trigrest's to grivel matrix tech axes
The trigrest's are slightly to big for the Matrix shaft, put some tape underneath and it'll work. Some pictures towards the bottom here http://vikingalpinism.blogspot.se/2011/08/taping-icetoolhandles.html
ohh, please note, I had the axes pop out of shallow ice placements a couple of times. The second handle is too far out, not underneath the pick as on Nomics or Fusions.
Used matrix lights with petzl trigrest for 3 years. I took a small piece of bike innertube which I inserted the shaft of the axe through. It was a perfect fit to then put the trigrest over. Used that setup for 3 years and never had to adjust or tighten the trigrests in all that time.
thanks for the advice guys
