      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!

BD Venom 50cm Hammer

Recommended Posts

Just broke in my new Venom hammer this last weekend and was impressed with the results. Great tool as a 2nd. It comes with BD's lockdown leash already attached and I found the leash easy to use and comfortable (all this considering the price of the Venom, $124.95'ish)

 

The head swung well and balanced and stuck in the ice and snow great. The contoured head is also quite comfortable for a gloved hand.

 

No complaints here. 2 thumbers up. :tup::tup:

Roboboy had one of these for our climb on Saturday. He said he thought it was too light for water ice, but would be excellent as an alpine tool.

I have these tools and like them except that I find when you plunge the shaft into the snow to the head and put weight on it the axe twists because of the curve. Other than that great, with the usual BD quality
