Questions & Reviews

Question from Will
If you had to pick between this and the petzl gully which would you pick? No pun intended…
Answer from Emmett I
Hi Will,

Depends on your use case - the Venom is a great option if you want to have some modularity - you can swap the pick, remove the hammer, and of course have the option of using it as a shovel handle. If you don't need those features, the Gully is simple and reliable.

So to answer your question, ME specifically I'd go with the simplicity of the Gully, as I don't have much need for the extra features of the Venom. But I'm sure for lots of folks the Venom makes more sense.

Just choose based on the color.
