Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel What a good screw!
My AMGA guide introduced me to these while learning to ice climb in Hyalite. I lead WI4 and this is the only screw that I have. I won't be buying any other screws anytime soon and will replace my current pieces with BD when the time comes.
I like the bite and ease of setting.
Super smooth insertion/progress, once started.
Folding handle is awesome.
I've driven these right into rocks and frozen dirt on the back side of the falls. The screws had a more difficult time biting into the ice...but that's my fault. The screws still worked and just needed some quick attention in the garage when I got back.
Plenty of people have more experience, but I love the product and price. And Black Diamond.

When you are pumped, run out and your hands are so numb you cannot feel them the last thing you want is an overly complex ice screw! The BD Express Screws are simple to use, sharp and go in with no fuss. They are the best, the gold standard. They are the only screws I use!

definitely an improvement of the BD screws from a decade ago. I haven't used other brands of screws in years, but these are truly amazing. Better tooth design.

The express screws bite quickly and go in easy. The trigger allows for fast and comfortable placing. I hanger is thin which makes racking screws on ice clippers very streamlined. My favorite part of the express screw is that it has two holes on the hangar. This makes anchoring in and building your anchor simple and efficient.

It is hard to give a review on something that doesn't really need it. If you have ever tried any other kinds of ice screws, you know that nothing compares to the express ice screw. Why would you use anything else? These are great and are a ease to place.

Love these Express screws! I use these when guiding/instructing on glacier ice and it is great to consistently have sharp screws that place quickly. Excellent!
