great screws

great screws. used both these and turbo express screws this winter (as well as omega pacifics). Really liked the turbo screws, they went in really well and didn't take that much longer to place than the turbo express. Though, when it's really vertical and you're run out and you want something in fast, it's really nice to have a turbo express, otherwise these babies are great. definitley worth it. In my opinion the added speed of the expresses would only have been worth it once or twice this winter. and even then the turbo's were fine.

I've used these and the BD express quite a bit. I like the handle on the exress a lot, but not sure if it justifies the added $20 price tag. If it's a difference between having enough screws or not, then go with these otherwise maybe try to build up using the Express so you can have the better hanger and handle to drive the screw in nice and fast.

This is a great screw and my favorite of different ice screws I have. It is really easy to place. The teeth are still razor sharp after two seasons of climbing on it. There are no signs of major wear. For the money it is your best bet. I prefer these over the new express screws. It only takes a few more seconds to place these.

Have only used for mountaineering on a glacier, and glacier ice climbing, but I was very happy with the ease of placement. After using both these and the expresses I would really say there is no need to get them unless you need extra fancy systems to skrew your ice skrews in. Not necessary at all though

Used the 19s to place numerous running belays on icy sections of Bolam Glacier, Mount Shasta. They worked great. Maybe the handles would be necessary for ice climbing, but for general mountaineering the turbos are a cinch to place for an extra level of safety on that touchy icy stretch. I like 'em.

Great Alpine screw!

These are great screws to take on Alpine climbing. The go in pretty easily and are simple. They don't have extra pieces that get tangled in crevasse rescue gear. I know there are probably some newer ones out there that are lighter and faster, but this is tried, tested, and trusted.

Black Diamond screws are the best hands down.
Petzl's may have all sorts of gimicks, Grivels feel a bit sharper when new, and OP screws might be a bit easier on the wallet, but for long term use, and a screw that keeps its bite year after year, these are the goods.

Quality product. Vertical ice was sloppy one day and brittle hard the next but the screws worked well in both cases and I felt secure. I also had the fancy BD version with the folding knob and used both equally and with the same amount of ease/comfort.

This is absolutely a winner for the ice screws. They are so sharp that they are very easy to put into ice. Nice Design and no problems found whatsoever. Definitely worth its money.

These are great screws. They are a simple old style, and razor sharp, the will last a very long time thats for sure

Negative Reviews:

Lack of a winding knob makes thisi screw obsolete. Save your money and get a knob.

Neutral Reviews:

Even if these screws place more slowly than every other screw, they are still great for setting up a belay or TR, and we save on the price. A nice price point screw!
