The photos work great now. I have those same tools and also made a homemade pinky rest out of the BD Pre 2007 Viper pinky rest you can buy off BD's web site. Those look like they will work good too, just don't tear your glove on the sharp corners. (I take off the pinky rest and leashes for alpine ice and put them back on for vertical Ice climbing).

I would say its a good deal and get them. Once you really get into it and become more knowledgeable you can treat yourself to a brand new pair!
