Black Diamond Fusion 2

In keeping with the winter climbing and mountaineering we’ve got another ice axe which is a favourite among our staff. Black Diamond Fusion 2 comes in slightly heavier than our other favourite at 680g and notably, the new fusion 2 is four ounces lighter than it’s older sister ,it’s Black Diamond’s premier mixed climbing tool with a hydroformed aluminum shaft.
The grip on the Fusion is ergonomic: A raised rib between the index and middle finger improves your grip and helps you direct the swing more accurately. We like this tool, but deducted a star and gave it four instead of five because the grip doesn’t feel as responsive as the Petzl Nomic.
