Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A staple to the ice climber's quiver 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. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing 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. January 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The gold standard My favorite to place. My favorite to clean. My favorite to rack. January 5, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Benchmark in the industry! Dependable, durable, quick. now if only they could make them lighter without reducing the durability... July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by These don't really need a review These do not need a review since they are the best and the standard! This is the C4 camalot of ice and alpine climbing! Enough said! July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BD Express Why are BD Express screws the best? 1. Agressive tooth profile ease starting. 2. Speed dial for fast placement. 3. Very smooth finish makes placing in hard ice and cleaning the core easier. 4. Multiple clipping holes. 5. Narrow gauge hanger makes for efficient racking on your harness (I easily carry 6-7 BD express per ice clipper.) April 22, 2014
