Title: Quark & Ergo replacement picks
Post by: Admin Al on April 06, 2017, 02:19:45 pm
I meant to post this earlier, but I figured better late than...

Petzl is discontinuing replacement picks for the original Quark and Ergo ice tools. If you use and like these tools, I still climb with my Ergo's almost all the time, I suggest that you ask around and but whatever ones are still available. I have 3 sets stockpiled and would buy another is possible.

I know that many people will say that there are newer tools that are supposedly better, but that is not the point. The Ergo suits the way I climb better than any tool I have tried, EVER! I don't want to get rid of them. And I am sure that I am not alone.

Word to the wise...

took my old quarks for a spin last week. I was happy to have the extra weight for bashing through the late season crud but damn those things are heavy...  The picks are in great shape for the once or twice a year I will use them.. Think I want a pair of Cassin All Mountains for gully climbs.....

Which Ergo's are you talking about Al? The super aggressive roof tool, or the ole quark ergo's?
