Product Description

The Black Diamond Express Ice Screws' unique taper reduces ice fracturing and eases placements. A large crank knob takes less fine motor skills to use than a small one, so you can place the Express Ice Screw when you're pumped like crazy and really need it. Black Diamond uses a stainless steel hanger to eliminate rusting and decrease sun-induced melt-out. Two carabiner holes make sketchy hanging belays easy to set up.

Dow WilliamsThese are not...

Voted 5/5

the turbos. This is my first season (2010) getting my hands on these. Mixed with my turbo express, no comparison. The big difference is the depth of the teeth. These start twice as easy. I am told that you can have your turbo's machined the same way supposedly. Two holes instead of one, not a compliment for me really. Bigger head and slightly different color regime.
