Hey everyone, I cannot actually believe that their is a forum for ice climbers in Canada. Loving this.

I will get straight to the point, I really really would like to get a Cassin X All Mountain Ice Tool to finish off my outfit for the winter. I have looked at some of the stores around where I live and they have them at stupid mark ups ($450!) so I am looking here to find something. I have done my research since last winter and decided that I really want this tool but I just can't afford the price they want for it here. Does anyone know of somewhere I can buy it from, possibly online that will be a more fair price? Thanks in advance for any suggestions you all have!

Someone on here sent me a link to a website with people selling their ice tools in Canada and the States, and I found an awesome Cassin X All Mountain tool on http://www.used.forsale/climbing-axe for $300 less then shat I saw in stores around. Thanks for the help gang, hope it is a cold winter this year!
