Maybe I missed a previous thread on these new crampons, but after about 6 days on them, I think they will replace all the other 'pons in my quiver. They are great on hard ice, soft wet ice, chandy ice, mixed, basically everything. I prefer the one huge horizontal tooth over a vertical mono on everything, and don't notice any negatives compared to the dual horizontals on Sabertooths.

For the last several years, I thought the Petzl Lynx was the jack-of-all trades 'pon (although it excels at nothing) but now I will be selling my Lynx's.

Anyone that has used the Snaggletooths has other thoughts?

I just got a pair, I think they climb ice well and are also good at mixed. The only downside is that once the front point is worn out you have to buy new crampons.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
