...a bit heavy. Nice swing and feel. Perfect for what I do!

I took these to Peru to do some semi-technical peaks and they performed very well. That said, they are heavy and I was quite jealous of my partner's lighter and leashless axes. I will be replacing these sooner than later for a more modern design.
