Has anyone swapped titan picks for the lasers on BD Vipers. I am not a huge fan of the durability of the Lasers but like how they climb. I haven't climbed on the Titans since using them on my old Rage's. If anyone has any personal experiences with this I would like to hear your thoughts. Thanks, John John Klooster

I did exactly what you said, and I like the Titans. They seem a bit more burly, but still stick well in the ice. Any specific questions? Cory

Did this with my Cobras. Feels like I get a better stick with the Titans and they ease my mind when it comes to durability over the Lasers. Josh Hutch

I climb on the Fusions (Tools) and climb both lots of ice and lots of mixed. I climb strictly ice on the laser picks and if I'm climbing hard mixed I use my fusion picks. I will however pick up a pair of Titan picks this season because I feel they def climb ice better then the lasers, and for a T rated pick, thats awesome. I have one that someone gave me....I threw it on one tool to compare last season and the differences were staggering. Likely, I'll use the titans as my go to ice pick this coming season. the lasers just dont do it for me. I would rather climb on the picks my old quarks used to have. cms829
