The weight of the sum'tec is one of the enhancing features about it.

The gully is not really designed for anything other than being on your pack in case you need it; if you need it, you'd be happier with the sum'tec; if the terrain is challenging enough that sum'tec's weight is too much you'd wish you had a real tool (and definitely not the gully).

Ice axes and tools are one of those things where the skimping of weight is counter productive. I actually looked for the heaviest axe I could find when purchasing my most recent one.

You definitely don't want to be in a position, pull you axe out, and realize your ultralight toy is no match for the snow, snice, neve, or ice in front of you ...
