Dig all the small changes they've done. That fold up griprest on the quark is cool

I had a chance to try out the new Quark on an alpine climb that involved a bit of caning, plunging, daggering, and swinging.  The fold-up grip rest makes plunging significantly more efficient and is a key differentiating feature for alpine climbing, IMO.  Daggering with the new hydroformed shaft was nice, but not really a significant difference.  The handle feels a bit more comfortable, but I didn't really get to test them on anything pumpy.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
