MSR® Snow Tools - Legendary Safety Performance When it Matters Most Product News

Established in 1969, MSR (Mountain Safety Research) forayed into winter tools throughout the 1970s, including tubular pickets, the legendary Thunderbird ice axe, and even an ice screw with the now ubiquitous "coffee grinder" handle. This stuff is in MSR's DNA, and engineering safer, more reliable climbing gear is the very reason MSR was founded. The re-designed MSR Snow Picket and new MSR Snow Fluke have arrived in 2013 thanks to a focus by MSR on opportunities to combine contemporary MSR technology and engineering with their rich heritage of making the mountains a safer place to be.

MSR Snow Picket

The MSR Snow Picket is the most widely used and trusted piece of snow protection made. The updated design boosts durability and ease-of-placement, providing fast, reliable snow protection when it counts.

Strong: Aircraft-grade aluminium T-beam offers maximum strength with minimum weight.
Durable: Reinforced hammer-end reduces deformation.
Efficient: Tapered drive-end penetrates easily.
Versatile: Multiple, bevelled attachment points allow vertical and horizontal placement.
Visual Cue: Red highlight denotes the middle-clip in point.

MSR Snow Fluke

The MSR Snow Fluke is the lightest snow fluke available. A patent-pending design utilises a frame-and-decking combination to reduce weight without compromising holding power.

Ultralight: Patent-pending design creates the lightest snow fluke available.
Reliable: Tough, urethane-coated nylon decking maintains surface area and holding power.
Strong: Waterjet-cut, 7000-series aluminium frame with corrosion-resistant galvanised steel cable.

Are there any actual specs for this, asides from small/black and large/black, namely weight and dimensions (does small/large relate to 'shovel' area or wire length?)??
