    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Viper Adze 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.

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Viper Adze Ice Tool:

    These are the most comfortable tools I've used, with or without straps. They are a major $$$ investment, and hopefully BD will drop the tag a little. I love the feel of the placements, but have found chopping steps/ platforms to be sub-standard, though most of the bent-shaft tools seem this way. Still, beats the other models in this price range hands down.
