Rated 5 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by There is a reason that these are so popular A solid, light tool that swings well. This tool is well suited to alpine or waterfall ice. BD has a simple and effective head design that allows changing picks with ease. These carbon tools are quite light and really well balanced. May 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent These are the best tools that I have used for ice and rock. I have been using mine now for 3 years and they still perform great. January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Love the grip, the swing, the stick, the removal. No frills tool that gets it done! Despite being carbon, my personal experience and that of others supports its bomber durability. Great all around tool that can get you up ice, mixed, and alpine with style. Capable dry-tooling as well. January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent These tools have such a great feel to them. They're lightweight, and the swing is easy. I love them! December 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesomeness These ice tools are great, I've been using them for a season and climbed solid WI3+ with them from -10 to summer glacier climbing. They stick with the first flick and are solid. The carbon fiber soaks up the vibrations and every stick is bomber. They do feel a little on the heavy side, but having so little vibration from use more than makes up for this on multi-pitch climbs. Highly recommend giving them a go. September 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by COBRA ICE TOOL After 7 Seasons with the Cobras, I still have not come across another tool that performs as well for me. Great balance, weight, security and precision in all terrain, This is the only set of tools I need. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything You Think They Are I've put a solid season on my Cobras on both ice and rock and have not regretted the purchase. They are more expensive than other tools, but the price is well worth it. These tools are so light and comfortable that I find myself picking them up in the house all the time. They are light but heavy enough to achieve excellent swings and sticks. You'll thank yourself on that 100ft WI4 when your arms are not as tired. The dampening of the carbon is great, especially compared to a tool like the Viper or Fusion. I've beat the tool to death testing ice, scratched and wrenched the shaft locking into cracks, and besides minor blemishes the tool has held up like a champ. I'm really not sure how you could improve an all-around tool like this one. I've also found that the grip seems stickier than others I have tried. Changing picks in the field is also a breeze. Bottom line - BD has created an amazing tool for a variety of climbs. February 25, 2014
