Black Prophets are Great! 4 out of 5 stars

I got a pair of these brand new as my first tools. I've climbed up to WI4 with them and I like them a lot. They are definetly knuckle bashers, especially around buldges . . . takes some getting used to. They do have some more heft than the newer tools, but are by no means 'heavy.' On less-than-vertical ice they're your best friends if you prefer a leash on your tools. However, I would avoid them for mixed climbing.
