User Image

When the Quark came out it was a good axe and I guess it still is in some respects for less technical climbing. Also I have quite a few friends who still climb with quarks quite happily - some of them are tough climbers, and their climbing is definitely not limited by their axe. But Quark's are not for me. It's not about the quality, but the swing and how solid the placements feel. Comparing to the most later generation axes I've climbed with, including Nomics, several Grivels and dozen others, they just don't feel as good. I guess it's mainly because the model is already pretty old and leashless climbing has changed the sport pretty much since their introduction.
