Rated 5 out of 5 by Thomas Just What I Needed
I purchased 2 of these for use with crevasse rescue primarily, and also for mixed routes where I was encountering a lot of ice. They are simple light and easy to use, they hang on your harness nicely and there is less to take care of without the speed knob on them.
All in all I am very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dean Solid screw. No frills. Simple.
My ice rack is mostly turbos with a few expresses for when I needed a little quicker placement or a v-thread.
Overall though Turbos are great. I can put them in almost as quickly as expresses, using the palm of my glove. A little bit tougher to place if I have to chip a bunch of junk ice away before placement. Spinning them in on the recessed spot in the ice that I've created can be a little more challenging due to my hand placement on the screw.
Can't beat the price/value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim As stated,"simple, lightweight & efficient"
A simple, well-built product that preforms as advertised. No "extras" or "gimmicky spinning knobby-things" Well priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike Excellent value and function!
The Turbo screws work just as well as the Express for most ice and go in almost as fast if you practice using the palm of your glove and spin it. The little handle on the Express doesn't help that much, but everyone I climb with prefers them over the Turbo. You can always have a few Turbos on your rack for belays or to put in at easy stances to supplement a rack of Express.
