I prefer the Turbo over "Black Diamonds Turbo Express". I just want to not take all the sport out of the climb because that is why I do it . I feel that thees are very smothe going in and are of good construction if that was even a question. I own the 22cm.

Three stars. Maybe four. The turbo express screws are just that much better. I don't care much for sport I want safe. Fast in is safe. Even with practice the Turbos don't go in as fast and you spend more energy doing it.

KISS simple, no frills and no latest greatest bullsh*t. Not as quick as the express's but I mostly do just alpine and they are more than adequate. When I'm doing WI and roadsides these screws remind you that you need to do a few more pullups and stop watching all that mindnumbing crap on TV!

They are light to carry and great for alpine. Simple screw with no frills. I like that, saves me money, and keeps me climbing.
