New in the original package. Cascade B rated pick for the first gen. Quarks and Ergo Quarks. Does NOT fit Nomic or new Quark. Hard to find any more, but here's one for less than original retail. Only regret is I don't have a pair to sell you. $35 + 5 for US shipping. Canadian shipping by quote.
Hey, on the off chance there's anyone still using first generation Quarks (or the Ergo Quarks) and needs new picks - you know that none of the Petzl tools use the same pick and that the original (Cascade) picks are all but unavailable anywhere. Well with a bit of work (one hole to drill and 2 minutes with a hacksaw) you can fit CAMP Awax picks to the Quark. They are a perfect match for pick length and angle and, being a smaller cross section, they penetrate ice "like buttah". I removed the hammer from my Quark, and don't miss it, but if you're a machinist I imagine you could mill out the Awax pick to allow the hammer/adze to stay in place. Best part - the Awax picks are still in stock at CAMP/Cassin and are selling for $15. At that price how can you not give it a try?
I have a like-new Petzl Quark with the Hammer (removable) I bought for parts but no longer need. The pick is perfect without any nicks and the shaft still has the factory glittery shine to the metal. I'd like to get $160 + 20 shipping. Local San Francisco area people can save on shipping and arrange a local swap. I've got Venmo and PayPal; other payment methods may be amenable. Reach out to me via PM.
