Gentlemen, What are the chances of getting some aftermarket power straps that come stock on these? I was able to score a pair of still-in-the-box TLT 6s so I'll be living in the past for the next couple of seasons. However, I never liked the Velcro power strap as it clings to the inside of my pant cuff. Arcteryx and now Salomon have done the deal better. I'll retrofit my 6s if I can get a pair. I tried some Booster straps but they're heavy and stretchy. Not what I want.
My Whippet........that's funny. But I get what you're saying. Never tried that.
There's no way to tell which color is Trojan and which is Lime Punch.
This is a great axe for general skimo use. The hammer handles pitons without issue and the straighter, longer shaft makes plunging as a cane much better than any technical tool out there. The moveable finger rest is sweet, as well, allowing you to slide it up the shaft when plunging or daggering. It also climbs steep ice quite well.
Tethers are the bomb for modern tools. Vanity or severely difficult modern mixed routes are the only reasons to not use them. I've had the BD version ever since I went leashless years ago. But the wire gate on those have their drawbacks. As usual, Grivel does it better with the lightweight locking biners.
