Just What I Needed

By Thomas

from Germany

Comments about Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screw:

I purchased 2 of these for use with crevasse rescue primarily, and also for mixed routes where I was encountering a lot of ice. They are simple light and easy to use, they hang on your harness nicely and there is less to take care of without the speed knob on them. All in all I am very happy.

Solid screw. No frills. Simple.

By Dean

from Anchorage, AK, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screw:

My ice rack is mostly turbos with a few expresses for when I needed a little quicker placement or a v-thread. Overall though Turbos are great. I can put them in almost as quickly as expresses, using the palm of my glove. A little bit tougher to place if I have to chip a bunch of junk ice away before placement. Spinning them in on the recessed spot in the ice that I've created can be a little more challenging due to my hand placement on the screw. Can't beat the price/value.

A simple, well-built product that preforms as advertised. No "extras" or "gimmicky spinning knobby-things" Well priced.

Excellent value and function!

By Mike

from Louisville, CO

Comments about Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screw:

The Turbo screws work just as well as the Express for most ice and go in almost as fast if you practice using the palm of your glove and spin it. The little handle on the Express doesn't help that much, but everyone I climb with prefers them over the Turbo. You can always have a few Turbos on your rack for belays or to put in at easy stances to supplement a rack of Express.

    Comments about Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screw:

    These are great screws to take on Alpine climbing. The go in pretty easily and are simple. They don't have extra pieces that get tangled in crevasse rescue gear. I know there are probably some newer ones out there that are lighter and faster, but this is tried, tested, and trusted.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screw:

      great screws. used both these and turbo express screws this winter (as well as omega pacifics). Really liked the turbo screws, they went in really well and didn't take that much longer to place than the turbo express. Though, when it's really vertical and you're run out and you want something in fast, it's really nice to have a turbo express, otherwise these babies are great. definitley worth it. In my opinion the added speed of the expresses would only have been worth it once or twice this winter. and even then the turbo's were fine.
