Has anyone used these tools? Are these a decent all around ice tool? Let me know what you think, and your experiences with them, good or bad.

I have one that I use for mountaineering and as a third tool for ice climbing. I have not had the need to use it as a spare for ice climbing yet. I'm only 5'6 so the length is good for me to use for mountaineering. If you don't like the rubber grip it seems as though it will peel off easy enough.

I have used them and the CM Guide and the CM north wall hammer and I found them to be an OK tools (definitely more alpine oriented...seems to ware me off pretty fast on vertical stuff)
the pick design is good (NEEDS modifications) and they are slightly heavy for general use
I will go with BD raven pro or alike for the glacier (only 12 to 13 oz) and a pair of Rage's, Axar's, Cobra's, Rambo's for the climb (if u doing really technical alpine climbing) also I found the later tools to be more versatile all arounder performers
