- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Despite being one of the heaviest tools in the market, In my opinion this is the most well balanced tool made. You can really control the weight very efficiently. Picks are cheaper than other tools which is a plus and they are a lot more durable. My only complaint with these tools is that on less steep routs and strange bulges you need to watch how you swing because the handle is less protected than more aggressive tools and you can really beat up you knuckles. If you want a hardy durable tool that can be used in any condition, this is a very good tool.
