    So Precise, So Nice

    This is an amazing tool. When you swing it, it sticks exactly where you want it to. Much more so than any other tool I've used. Much less ice shattering swings, and more just-right sticks.

    However, the Cobra is not as good as tools with more aggressively curved shafts for getting over/around bulges in the ice.

    If the ice is steep or you need to use the spike more like an axe in an alpine situation, this is one of the best tools out there.

    Performs excellent on all ice difficulties

    These tools perform excellent on all difficulties and ice conditions. Excellent on lower angle WI 2/3, but equally effective on vertical ice. Most of the weight is concentrated in the head which allows for a very comfortable, wrist flick, swing. I tend to break a lot of ice with other tools, but I have seen a significant improvement with these tools. I own grivel quantums and cassin x-all mountains, and these are by far my favorite. Quantums are lighter, Cassins have more curve, cobras are the best. I love the stiffness of the shaft, they feel so strong and secure which will give you a confidence boost on difficult ice. Excellent in the alpine and capable on rock. Really no downside to these tools. Bonus, they look awesome.

    My tools of choice

    I have three sets of ice tools -- the Cobras, 2014 Vipers, and a set of Fuels. The Cobras are my go-to tool. They swing so well. The balance and weight just feel great in my hands. The carbon fiber shaft dampens impact more than the aluminum shaft of the Vipers. I can customize these tools for the climbing goal of the day, whether that's dry tooling, mixed climbing, technical alpine, or blue water ice. They're fantastic!

    Of course, no tool is perfect. So, I need to also make suggestions for improvement. The grip is perhaps a slight bit small for my hands. So, BD, if you can make the grip size more customizable, that would be a good next step in tool evolution. The grip is the user-tool interface, and the more seamless that interface, the better.
