So along with the rest of my Lyon delivery came 2 21cm Petzl laser speed ice screws. This is just a quick first look at them.
I’ve needed some ice screws for a while and these are the top of the bunch imo (the light version is good, part aluminum with steel tip; but expensive)
The hanger is low profile but when the innovative crank is extended it will be easy and quick to whistle it right in.
The teeth also have a weird rebate at the bottom of the tooth; which helps to start the ice screw.
The teeth bite in well and the handle does work so I am impressed but it keeps the hanger low profile and is very light. If weight is crucial the more expensive light version is available.
