      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!

DMM Rebel and Anarchist

Recommended Posts

cut and pasted from rockclimbing.com info from the OR show ..

 

The Anarchist and Rebel are both hot forged, which enables DMM to create a shaft and head that are all one piece. Both tools also sport adjustable handles to accommodate different sized hands and gloves, plus a matching handle. They’ll hit the shops this fall, so if you’re in the market for new tools, keep an eye out.

Though DMM didn’t have any production models with them, they did have a sample of the hot forged shaft in an early stage of production. Nifty, huh?

 

MEC has the Rebel listed @ $210.00 CAD

Copy at a much cheaper price apparently.

 

I'd like the Quark to get a little adjustable high pinky rest. Anybody knows if the Quark is changing for this season?

I'd like to echo Dru here: The Anarchist especially looks like an exact Quark Ergo rip off. Oh, except for that useful ice axe leash attachment point, which I will need for my leashless ergo tools.

agreed ... then again most jet fighters have swept wings ..

 

the Raveltik Demon has been out for a few years as well ... it's similarities to the Quark are also obvious

The picture in Rock & Ice (issue 145) does not show the same leash attachment on the Rebel. It is a soild eyelet instead of a "built in" wiregate.

How are the DMM picks? Do hey stick and clean as well as the picks on the Quarks??

I've used both the DMM Rebel and the Raveltik. The DMM is very nice, has a beautiful swing and the pick is very aggressive, but still pretty easy to clean. I wouldn't pick it for any really overhanging stuff, it's not as comfortable to hang onto as Vipers or Ergos but I would be more than happy to climb pure ice/easy mixed with them.

 

The Raveltiks suck. The balance feels off, the picks are not so great and they just don't swing very nicly, nor to they pentrate very well (a related problem, I realize).

 

My 2cents and study avoidance strategy

 

Oh they don't take the same picks. My friend with the raveltiks said he tried to fit cascade picks on them but the holes didn't line up or something
