Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best screws on the market Bought them a month ago, and have gotten good use in a so far fantastic early season. The yellows are a perfect all around screw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great screws for fast placements I bought several of these a month ago and finally got to use them. They were easy to place and the crank made them super easy. The crank folds neatly out of the way when you go to clip the screw. No complaints at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Good ice screw. Compared to Petzl, more BD screw enter in a carytool and new they work equally. The only advantage of the Petzl is the fact that the square shape of the head of the screw need a smaller mouvement of the hand when we enter it in the ice at the beginning. Maybe BD would immitate this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome purchased a few of these new style screws to fill in some gaps in my rack. These are by far the best, super easy to place and color scheme is easy to read and you know what size your using either cleaning or leading. Way sharper than my older style screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Always happy to place an express screw. Easy to start and flip thumb drive into “express mode”. Time is precious when you feel the burn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the best ice screw ever! Been using these for fun and for teaching for 25 years. Old style aluminum style before that did not really work quite so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The standard Fastest biting screws with great durability at a very slight weight penalty. Easy to resharpen as necessary with a file or a Dremel. I own a rack of 12 express. 4 stars because I want something that weighs as much as a feather, drives like it's on ball bearings, and lasts forever.
