      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Cheap Ice Tools

Recommended Posts

Pro Mountain Sports has Charlet Moser 13cm screws on sale at $30. There's also a hammer DMM Fly tool for sale around $80-90. There was another tool for sale at $80-90, I just can't remember which price for which tool. They have a third tool for $39 (Grivel, I think). I guess they have tools to try out too, there were some on the racks. Looks like PMS preps their workers for ice climbing, the dude working there was bundled up in a coat and warm hat.

I think there were two adze Dmm Flys for $120 each, but not sure. They also have some of those butt-floss Mammut single spectra slings.

Yes, but they're lighter and better balanced, or at least that's how they felt the one time I compared the two.

did the shrike replace the old x-15's?

The shrike is similar to the metal shafted X-15's (red) of a couple years ago. Shaft may be a bit lighter.

 

The shrike is not the same as the older, bonded rubber shaft (BRX) X-15's of several years back, that look like a Black Prophet without a fluted shaft, and without a replaceable head.

I bought both the Shrike and X-15 new from eBay. The Shrike is a bent shaft and has a slightly smaller diameter shaft than the X-15. They both seem to have the same pick attachment point thing-a-ma-jig so it looks like I can swap out picks between them. Maybe that's standard with all the BD tools, I don't know.

Shrike $100, X-15 $70

eBay continually has sales on tons of ice and rock gear. Paypal is a pain in the ass the first time around.
