I'm a big fan of the Rages for many of reason people have listed above. Interchangable parts, great value, and versitility. The pinky rest can be both a curse and a feature, sometimes I appreciate it to improve grip on the tools and othertimes I curse it for not allowing me to grab the tool as low as I'd like. It's a heavier tool, but again, this can be both a good thing and a bad thing, depending on the route and your style of ice climbing. A solid buy regardless of skill level.
