    Petzl Quark Ice Tool - Hammer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic tool I'm a late adopter in everything--usually content to carry on with what I'm used to. Two or three winters ago a friend urged me to try a curved and leashless tool. I bought one that looked sensible and felt good in my hand, took it outside, and hated it. I couldn't get good sticks, and went back to my two old straight tools. This winter I hefted a Quark in a shop and decided to take another chance. Not sorry! This is a marvelous tool. Though light, it gives solid sticks even without extra head weights. I still use a straight axe in my other hand, because mostly I climb solo on easy terrain, and I want a straight tool for snow-slope-y stuff. But I do some of this in exposed places and must get reliably good sticks with both tools from the get-go, or I head home. Among other things, the Quark makes pulling over bulges a lot more comfortable--partly because of the knuckle-saving curve that all the tools have now, but also because when you swing it over a bulge and set it, the spike tends to come down in just the right way to give you a wobble-proof two-point placement. Very comforting. Maybe all current tools do this, but the first one I tried was such an erratic sticker that I couldn't run away from it fast enough. Long live the Quark.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update Update from the late adopter: Last spring I bought a second Quark, with an adze, because I'd come to like my first one so much that I was convinced I'd climb more securely with two of them than with one and my old straight axe. This winter I've knocked off a route that I probably wouldn't have attempted without two of these tools. The ergonomic handles and the freedom from leashes do a lot for forearm stamina on steep ice. I shattered one of the moveable plastic Trigrests on that climb, by smashing it into a bulge. But it was set in a pretty vulnerable spot on the shaft, and it's easily replaced. I can't say enough about these tools. They're the best I've ever used.
