Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely Improvements over older model My old Whippet only collasped in one spot, leaving an akward hieght to be strapped to a pack or in ascending steep terrain. The new 2 point collasping sytem helps the whippet fit nice and tidy on a pack. This also aids your use in acending really steep terrain as the pole can collaspe to a useable short hieght. This is one of my go to pieces on almost all my ski/climbing endeavours because of its versitility and usefulness such varied alpine terrain. I have used this in ski mountaineering to self arrest on multiple occasions. The added surface area to the head of the axe truly helps aid in better stopping power. More than any ice axe I have ever used. I actually prefer this over my ice axe. Also its strength and non bending carbon nature. My old whippet had been used so much the bottom pole was all bent up making it immpossible or difficult to collaspe. with the new carbon this will not be an issue, not to mention the lighter wieght. Overall BD has solved all my complaints with this new design. Thanks BD keep it up! January 4, 2014
