Comments about PETZL Quark Ice Axe:
The weight of this tool makes it a perfect alpine ice tool. Being an 180-lb man, I personally favor heavier tools for pure waterfall ice - the older version of Quarks are perfect for me. On the other hand someone who's lighter weight (like my wife) wants something lighter, so new version Quarks are ideal for her.
