The Turbo Express ice screw from Black Diamond has been regarded by many, as the best ice screw in the world since it first came out.
With BD's tooth geometry, these screws are easy to start into hard water ice and the new enlarged crank knob is easier to grip with gloves on making screwing easier. The tapered tip eases placement by the teeth cutting a hole just larger than the tube itself, which means less friction during placements. The new hanger is made from stainless steel, which is lighter, won't rust and shouldn't warm up as much on sunny days (has that really ever been a problem)? It also features twin clip-in points, which helps make belay organisation simpler.
