    Hey all,
    I plan on Retiring my old pair of crampons and now in the market for some new crampons. I was wondering if anyone can share their experiences on either one of them. Thanks!

    I've got both. I've broken bails on both. The lynx had two bail failures, left and right, on the same pitch! I am currently mostly using the lynx in mono mode. I think they are easier to change out the front points, but they do rattle a bit unless you constantly tighten them. I think the lynx provides more options for rigging, because it can be asymmetrically set on the front points (one longer, the other shorter), but I've never seen the need for that. Lynx has sharper points under foot. But I do like the rear bail on the cyborg better, easier to remove.

    For me, the Lynx is one of the best Crampons I have ever used! They are my crampon of choice now.

    Thanks for the input. I think I am leaning Towards Lynx. I have been using the Sarkens The past 10 years or so and love them.I only wish I could change out the front points on them. I like to point configuration on the lynx as well. I do agree that the BD's rear bails are easier to take off- not a big deal though. My only gripe with the lynx Is that it comes with all the extra accessories that I don't need
