So let's say that one has been regularly bumming their friend's gear to go ice climbing and has now decided to actually go out and buy some tools, but the friends tools are no longer on the market.
I've seen good package deals involving the 'Fly' and the 'Axar' (about 520 bucks for axes, 4 screws, Crampons, and 3 screamers, that's good no?) and have swung both in a shop. Found I liked both 'ok' and would probably just get used to whichever I bought. So what I'm wondering, those of you who have either - any serious problems with either model?
Does the leash suck, are the picks brittle, is the adze useless??? Any useful first hand info would be helpful.....what do you like and not like about your weapons of choice?
thanks (for making me an informed consumer)
(and yes, I should go and demo, but for the sake of argument let's say that I can't or simply won't.)
