Weight:N/A
Durability:54321

Strong, light enough, and dependable. If you are booting up a couloir the security found with the BD Whippet is very comforting. I the steel pick stays sharp and the shaft doesn't break easily even after falling on it a few times.

Value:43211

In my opinion you can't put a price take on safety and for $100 there are a great value. It is essentially a ice/snow tool but you can also use it as a pole. What's not to like?

User Experience:54321

Absolutely love it. The security and easy it provides when booting up a couloir is unmatched. No more are the days of trying to hold a pole and a ice tool in the same hand.

Review:If you are skiing steep lines or ascending steep snow couloirs you should have a whippet.
