      I really like these tools, but I think the titan picks should come with them if they're going to be considered an "all terrain tool".

      • Rugged

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Alpine

        • Waterfall ice

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Viper Ice Tool:

        I climb mostly waterfall ice and alpine ice. For me this is just the next generation tool from a trusted company. While this tool has most of the features found on the higher end BD tools, it's price point is significantly lower. The only negative attribute I can mention is that BD continues to trend away from the bare bones approach and focuses more and more on name brand recognition. While this has lead to the addition of various superfluous stylistic features, it has not as yet effected function. I'm sure it has effected price to some extent.
        Bottom line: These tools are tough, functional, and relatively light.

        Pros

        • Comfortable Grip
        • Ergonomic
        • Good Balance
        • Lightweight
        • Safe

        Cons

        • Hard to pull out

        Best Uses

        • Challenging overhangs
        • Mixed climbing
        • Vertical Ice

        Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Viper Ice Tool:

        Add a bit of supertape above the fang for optimal grip. The placement is amazing for both grip positions. My only concern is that it is hard to pull the tools out. Detune the picks a little bit, filing down the front three teeth will make it easier.

              Great product, not the lightest tool on the market, but also not the most expensive one either.

                Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Viper Ice Tool:

                I must say I love BD picks. They hold up very well when they hit rock. I also like how the weight is in the head so they swing easily and place easily.

                      Great deal on these tools. Fast free shipping and I've already put them to good use. Looking forward to many good ice climbs with them in the future.
