Camp Awax 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: brokenankle, 2008-01-23


A great tool. The swing is light and balanced, with great clearance and an easy to plunge shaft. I use these tools for WI cragging and alpine and love them for both. My only complaint was the small strip of grip tape on the handle (think sandpaper/deck tape) was wreaking havoc on my gloves. But a thin wrapping of splicing tape solved that problem. The grips are small, so the 2mm increase in diameter wasnt even noticeable for me.

Caranut 4 out of 5 stars

The biner is nice. The tool is lightweight and thin. The thin tip is sharp, which makes it great for the tiny nuts but seems to be a bit more damaging when you are hammering stuck nuts out. Great tool though.

Weird pockets, horizontal cracks, etc These things are the best. Versatile, lightweight, and bomber. You cant ask for more than that.

The Best 5 out of 5 stars

These things are unbeatable. Narrow head, flexy stem, simple trigger. They go where nothing else will sometimes. Im not 100% over the manufacturing flaw dramas, but I still love them.
