I've had a pair of the X-Dreams for almost two years now, with moderate usage (30 + or - times per season). Love them, but... I've noticed that the grip, which can be adjusted from "ice" mode to "dry" mode, which changes the angle of the grip by 15 degrees or so, has an annoying tendency to loosen ever so slightly. I have only used them in ice mode. I have had to really crank hard to fully tighten them, but now I've got one tool that will not tighten. The slight rattle is just a bit disconcerting, not exactly confidence inspiring though. I will still climb on them unless someone out there has info that makes me rethink this. What experiences or info do X-Dream users have?
