      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!

They are very similar to the Quarks, and are just as good in my opinion. The advantage is the price, you can get them for much less than Quarks. They are made in Czechoslovakia, and have held up well for me so far. I've used the "Super Cup" version of them for the last 2 years. That model has the forefinger and pinky rests. Leashes are only decent though. The Quark, Easy G, and Rage leashes are signifcantly better in my opinion.

 

Here is a photo of the Demon Super Cup.

Hmmm, let's say I go climbing at way honed area with my new Raveltek tools and I break a pick. How many stores do you think I will have to go to in order to acquire a spare pick for my off brand tools while on my roadtrip. They are cheaper and they do climb similar to Quarks. I suggest that if you choose to purchase them you stock up on accessories so you have stuff when your local shop decides to drop the line. pitty.gif

But I was always told I'm Czechoslovakian, so am I Slovak, or Czech now?

Well, I looked in the user guide last night, and they are made in the Czech Republic. I guess I should keep up on that stuff. blush.gif

 

Good point Joe on the picks. I'll have to get some spares from Lan.

Can you use picks (accesories) from other brands?
