Wraps are off the new Grivel axe or am I just behind the times:

Different pick here;

Handle looks quite angles away from the shaft indicating like, like the names says, it's for DT and Comps, but the priceĀ£357each for a Tech Carbon with a carbon handle.

Swing might be a bit sucky on ice but the handle construction has to be better than the current Tech machine.

"Created for modern competitions and for dry tooling, where the routes are often more on the rock than on the ice, the Comp Machine is the definitive tool for hooking, allowing a greater performance on the rock. The further corner of The Comp Machine allows to switch hands with a perfect stability of the blade in the hold."

Seeing as Grivel don't keep their web site up to date there may even be two versions.
