Every climber has his own idea of the perfect swing. some like more weight on the head, some prefer a lighter icetool. there is no general solution for the perfect icetool, that is why we make our ice tools flexible and variable: you can choose between adze, a lighter version of a hammer or the lightest version: the dummy, in place of a hammer. the best thing is that the entire system is compatible with all out icetools except phRugo.
