I am an engineering student working on an ice climbing screw design and I was hoping to do a little bit of market research.  I've made a very short survey that I was hoping to get some responses to.

I think more important that speed of placement is ease of placement. That has lot more to do with hanger and teeth design than something like how fast you can move your hand and is really the number 1 reason I've one type over any other.  I'd guess most would agree.  The cost, weight, speed, durability, etc. all don't matter if you can't easily get the screw started into the ice.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
