Reactor Ice Tool is rated out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Benjamin from Great tool! Light but really precise, offset of the handle feels great in hard climbs, balance is great and the pick is the nicest goes really smooth into the ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raphael from Great pure ice tool The Reactor is one of the best pure ice tools I've used. When paired with the new Natural Ice picks, I find I'm able to get good placements on the first swing almost every time. The open shaft geometry makes for a very natural swing, no funky wrist flick required. This geometry also makes the Reactors perform well even on less than vertical ice, unlike many more steeply drooped tools. The lightweight construction and even weight distribution also make it easy to accelerate the head of the tool, no big windup needed. Unless the ice is really cold and hard, a fast, short swing is enough. When paired with the Mixed picks, the Reactors perform well on rock as well, though for extensive drytooling the Fuels are still the way to go. But for pitch after pitch of ice, the Reactors are my first choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Review after 30ish pitches. I’m falling in love with these. My hands are not large but wide and don’t fit into some other tool handles. I can accurately place these tools and the thin pick is amazing in dat fat ice. Kinda heavy for some but great weight for me to make good sticks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aaron from Fuel and a X-dream had a baby So my first set of tools was a old pair of leashed cobras sans pommel, then i got a set of fuels and it was life changing, X dream never felt right...Nomic Never felt right. At the end of the day you gotta find the right tool for you. If you like fuels...you will like these more. Love the swing and it’s just fantastic hanging on this big meaty handle on a steep piece of ice.
